Client Focus: As a Financial Planner, Jen enjoys connecting with clients and assisting with any needs in pursuit of their Live Big® goals!

Current Update: Jen is really excited to be getting back to old habits and also trying out some new fun activities! She feels that it is a bittersweet to be taking a break from coaching a volleyball team this year, but is happily taking the advantage of the extra time to be playing volleyball in a league instead.

She has very recently become addicted to yoga night at Grace Cathedral. The setting is unbelievably beautiful! Balancing is not her forte, but with more practice and experience she’s sure to stable out a bit. Lastly, Jen has also committed to several early mornings to the November Project, a workout group that meets at parks in the city where everybody loves hugging, #hashtags, and burpees. Their motto: #justshowup!


“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
