Jen has always had a strong interest in animals. She grew up in a small town in New Jersey with a variety of animals. At the age of 4, her mother got their first dog, a Golden Retriever named Ginger. This is where it all started. She used to be terrified of dogs but you would never know that today. She has worked in many dog and cat boarding facilities, as well as dog daycare facilities. But Jen decided she wanted more than playing with them. She wanted to help them as well.
She made her way to Ark after moving in with her boyfriend and recently graduating from the University of Delaware with a bachelors degree in Pre-Veterinary Medicine. From the day she interviewed, Jen knew this is where she wanted to be due to the friendliness of the staff and the large family feeling you get when you walk in the door. Eventually, she plans on attending veterinary school.
Outside of work, Jen enjoys playing and going for runs with her dog, spending time hiking, watching movies and cooking. At home, Jen has a goofy dog of her own, a three year old lab mix named Ryder.
