As an agency co-founder, Jen has a deep passion for connecting with those experiencing homelessness. Having worked in most areas of sheltering, from overnight staffing to volunteer work to management, stepping into the role of Director in 2014 was a natural fit. Additionally, her case management background brings about the ability to navigate through the most challenging of situations with our clients.
During her time as Director, Jen has worked to connect with the larger community, local businesses, faith organizations and government agencies. This includes nurturing an environment of partnership, investment, and cohesion between our neighbors, whether housed or un-housed. Her passion lies in the relational side of social services and in helping people find their way home.
Jen is a member of the Snoqualmie Valley Housing Task Force, Seattle King County Coalition on Homelessness Senior Leaders Team, and the Snoqualmie Valley Chamber of Commerce.
In her personal life, Jen enjoys time with family and friends. She loves to paint with acrylics, read, work puzzles, cook a good meal, practice meditation/yoga and walk through our beautiful valley scenery. Prior to her time with us, she was a Real Estate Broker.
