From her earlier work at PricewaterhouseCoopers Consulting (now IBM Business Consulting) through her work at Points of Light Foundation and beyond, Jen’s career has often bridged the corporate and nonprofit worlds.

Jen hails from Alabama, where she acquired a taste for fried catfish and grits. She graduated from Bowdoin College with a B.A. in Spanish and lives in Arlington, VA, with her husband, Evan, guitarist for the rock band Honor By August, and their beautiful daughter, Annabelle.
