Jen likes to have fun, which makes her the perfect choice for special events co-chair. Her experience planning school auctions, special events and entertaining have prepared her for this role.

While raising her twins, Jack and Emma, Jen was involved in various philanthropies and held many different positions on and off the board. Jen is looking forward to putting her energy into Impact100 Greater Sacramento and excited to be part of the founding team. She is inspired by the Impact100 model because she knows how much a $100,000 grant can change the trajectory of a nonprofit, increase the number of people benefited, or give hope to an entire community.

Now that her nest is empty, she and her husband Ken are enjoying new adventures and hoping to travel more. Jen’s favorite way to spend an afternoon is with a great glass of red wine and a good book!
