BS Environmental Design, University of Colorado in Boulder
Raised by 80’s movies… her parents owned a single-screen movie theater in rural Ohio… Jen was inspired by the ‘big screen’ and determined to travel the world. Her first experience abroad was as on a year-long exchange to Sweden. This eye-opening, challenging and rewarding event ignited a curiosity to explore and to create her own unique journey through life.
After returning to the US, Jen entered the field of experiential education as an instructor for a therapeutic wilderness program and as a rock climbing guide. Moving to Colorado in 2003, Jen dedicated herself to yet another passion… the arts… and built a career as an architect and designer. Joining Dragons as an India instructor in 2012, Jen quickly transitioned into the art director role.
Jen is a creative, a seeker of the world, and an educator at heart. Her love of climbing, skiing and biking continues to draw her into the deserts and mountains of Colorado… as well as Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.
