Chief Operations & Advancement Officer
Jen joined PSR-LA in 2019 as the Director of Development. She creates and executes plans that bring resources to PSR-LA’s work and she ensures that financial, operational and strategic planning activities are aligned to support overall programmatic goals. Jen also works closely with a collaborative team to oversee the implementation of fundraising, membership, communications, and health professional organizing strategies.
Jen’s passion for environmental issues began as a young adult after her family’s home outside of Washington, DC was impacted by an oil spill from a nearby tank farm. Since then Jen has worked with a number of nonprofit groups and has always been active in the civic life of her local community. She was elected for two terms as President of a local Vermont school board, and recently she managed a successful political campaign that resulted in the election of a new member to the Vermont House of Representatives.
Jen earned her B.A. from Northern Vermont University and her Certificate in Nonprofit Management from Marlboro College Graduate School. Her favorite place in Los Angeles is Long Beach where you are most likely to find her at the YMCA, the beach or walking in Heartwell Park. Jen loves all the LBC’s diverse local food options, as well as watching baseball and spending quality time with her family.
