Jen came to Advice Media in 2014 with solid prior experience in process development and scalability. These skills, coupled with her natural leadership talent, intellectual curiosity, and go-getter attitude, earned Jen a steady series of promotions at Advice Media. She started with a small digital marketing team of one and currently leads four teams located across all three domestic offices, as well as in the Philippines.
After receiving her Master of Science degree from Utah State University, Jen quickly built an impressive career. Some of her former positions include Director of National Training at a large software company, as well as Location Onboarding & Marketing Manager with a prominent nationwide sports franchisor.
When she is not at the Advice Media Headquarters in Park City, Jen finds a variety of ways to enjoy the famous beauty of Utah’s mountains. An avid outdoor enthusiast, she can often be found glamping in her charming Airstream, Lola, accompanied by her sweet and loyal canine friend, Lily. She is also an avid mountain biker and skier who sews quilts with impeccably matched seams.
My passion: pushing the boundaries for women forward, regardless of the venue.
Tell us about something you're especially proud of.
In 4th grade I was the only girl participating in the city basketball league. It was my first time playing organized sports and I got less playing time than the coach’s son who ran up and down the court with his hands jammed in his jeans pockets. The boys on the team told me I should be the cheerleader because girls didn’t play basketball, but I never missed a practice and I even scored my first points in a game that season.
That experience fueled a competitive spirit and passion for athletics that earned me a full-ride track college scholarship and ultimately a spot on the US Women’s national bobsled team. At the time, women’s bobsled was not an Olympic sport. Over the next two years, I campaigned alongside the Salt Lake Organizing Committee and the United States Olympic Committee for inclusion in the Games. Consequently, women’s bobsled was added as an official Olympic sport in 2002.
I am proud to become the first female on the Executive Team at Advice Media and to work for an organization that values hard work and relentless effort.
