Jen started her career in the conservation field as a park ranger in 2012. She worked as a ranger for six years in all parts of Utah including refuge lands in northern Utah working with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

After graduating from the University of Idaho with an MS in Natural Resource and Environmental Science in 2015 she obtained a job in Alaska working for the Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service as a ranger rotating seasonally. She transitioned to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center in 2018 where she learned about nonprofits and oversaw all education and outreach programs. She worked with black bears, brown bears, muskoxen, red fox, caribou, porcupines, wolves, moose, wood bison, and Sitka black-tailed deer. 

Jen has always enjoyed being outside in nature and spends time photographing wildlife and landscapes. She loves reading, fishing, and going on adventures with her friends.
