Jen joins Spiracle Media as an Associate Producer after working closely with the team since 2013 through a long-time partnership with the YMCA of Greater Charlotte. During her 12 years at the Y, Jen served in a variety of marketing and communications roles focused on cause-driven storytelling and positioning the Y as a leading nonprofit in the Charlotte community. She is passionate about sharing stories that inspire others to do good.
Born and raised in Iowa, she ran track and cross country at Simpson College and graduated with a marketing degree and minors in corporate communications and psychology. In 2007, Jen moved to the big city of Charlotte where she launched her career, met her husband and set down roots. Her parents and siblings still live in the Midwest but she now calls North Carolina home.
When Jen is not busy telling stories, she is even busier raising toddler triplets with her husband Michael, and watching Hawkeye football at their home in the Lake Norman area.
