Former D1 Rower and Current Youth Football Coach
Trainers - Seattle
Sports: Football, Basketball, Field Hockey, Other
Jen coached youth football for 6 years, working with boys ages 7 to 14 years old. She served administrative roles on the team and on the program's Executive Board. The growth she saw from the players confirmed her belief that skill acquisition happens more quickly when kids are in a positive, safe environment and this helps carry life lessons from the field into the family, classroom and community.
As an athlete, Jen played field hockey and basketball in high school. She rowed for 4 years at The University of Rochester, where she also served as team captain.
Jen has a Masters degree in Social Work, and spent many years working with homeless, runaway and street youth. She volunteers in her community, enjoys crossfit and the beautiful Pacific Northwest. She and her husband make their home outside of Seattle and are the very proud parents of 2 boys.
