Jen is the Executive Director for the Washington Wildlife Federation – WOW’s non-profit home – and manages the Washington Outdoor Women program. In this role, Jen is focused on her two passions – empowering women in the outdoors and advocating on behalf of wildlife. Together, these priorities are meant to cultivate an engaged community for wildlife and natural resource conservation.
Jen’s passion for wildlife and wild spaces manifested in graduate school where her hunting and field experiences brought depth to her understanding of plant and animal systems. Invested in WOW since 2011, Jen is honored to be a part of this community and shepherd the program through the coming years. Native to the Canadian Prairies, Jen has been at home in Washington State since 2010.
