In January of 2017, she took a canine bracing course, offered through the Animal Rehabilitation Division and fell in love with the work.

In her spare time, Jen enjoys hiking with her family, trail running with her dogs, snowboarding and is constantly finding new ways to be creative through cooking, baking, knitting or sewing.
