She is overjoyed to be back in the medical arena working to advance critical research for ALS while helping to provide essential equipment and care resources to individuals living the with disease now - inspired by the many friends she's lost to that devastating disease, beginning with ALS ONE's founder, Kevin Gosnell.
Jen's extensive background in marketing, mentoring, and public speaking, as well as leading award-winning volunteer fundraising efforts for various organizations including The American Heart Association, The American Cancer Society, South Plymouth Little League (where she was inducted into the Board of Directors Hall of Fame), among others, have been key to her success in her current role, having raised over ten million dollars thus far for ALS ONE, half of which as a result of grassroots marketing and fundraising campaigns.
