Jen lives with her family in a small community on the edge of the beautiful Idaho wilderness. She and her husband Danny have been married for 22 years and have the privilege of parenting seven amazing children who are always ready for an adventure.
Behavioral, emotional, and learning challenges among her children create many opportunities to engage with child-serving systems. She spent over three years working with other advocates and professionals to create a framework for Idaho’s new system of care. She continues to engage with this system transformation through her participation on various YES projects and as a member of the IFF Board of Directors.
She’s passionate about encouraging parent voice within systems and culture, raising resilient kids no matter what diagnosis or challenge they face, and most importantly, always speaking hope.
