She graduated from Kimberly High School in 1994, and attended UW Fox Valley where she obtained her Associates Degree.

She worked for the Division of Vocational Rehab in Madison and Green County helping people with disabilities get back into the workforce. Jen truly loved her work. However, in 2008, with her own disability and a need to move closer to home, she left Madison to return to the Fox Valley for good.
In her free time Jen enjoyed scrap booking, collecting stuffed animals, nature, long car rides, the Brewers and Packers, and spending time with her Godchildren Logan & Molly.
