Current Update: Jen has enjoyed a lovely holiday season, and is excited to begin new adventures in 2015. Before departing from San Francisco, Jen embraced as many holiday activities as she could squeeze into her schedule. From ice skating in Union Square to Handel’s Messiah at Grace Cathedral, and of course the life-size gingerbread house at the Fairmont, there was no shortage of Christmas spirit in her heart.

During a cold and rainy two weeks in Virginia, Jen was grateful for the time spent with family and friends, and for the quality time with the East Coast office! Her favorite excursion was to Ice! at Gaylord National Convention where the story of Frosty the Snowman is carved out of ice. The only complaint: her phone froze and she couldn’t take any more pictures.

She is looking forward to the upcoming ski/snowboard season at Lake Tahoe! Stay tuned for future stories and bloopers.


“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Marianne Williamson
