Jen has lived in Salt Lake City most of her life apart from year-long forays to Belgium in high school, Japan in college, and her stint in Massachusetts for undergrad. She taught high school English and currently wrangles middle school and high school students as a tutor to improve their writing and reading comprehension skills. She has worked as a river guide since 1990 and enjoys spending time exploring the outdoors with her husband and two children. Jen is passionate about conserving public lands in Utah, cooking, hands-off gardening, traveling, and reading for pleasure (at least when she had time before starting the EH program). She also feels strongly about recycling glass.
