Jen has an MBA from Columbia University and an extensive business background.
After nearly 20 years with the Federal Reserve, Jen left her high-level executive position for better quality of life and began her career as an entrepreneur in 2008. Her first entrepreneurial business venture was highly successful; when her business partner relocated in 2011, they sold the business at an 800% return on investment. The business continues to thrive under its current ownership. Jen is passionate about the travel industry and its limitless opportunities and maintains that she is here to stay.
In 2012, GIFTE became one of Jennifer’s clients for whom she provided services on a freelance basis. In 2012, Jennifer gave up her other clients to work with exclusively with GIFTE. Due to her extensive business background, Jennifer is a coach for GIFTE’s Diamond Mastermind Program and Travel Business Consulting packages where she provides coaching in the areas of business management, finance, team building, operations/implementation, strategic planning and leadership.
In 2013, Jennifer co-found Gifted Travel Network with Meredith Hill and Vanessa McGovern. Jen was responsible for the set up and launch of the host agency and is Gifted Travel Network’s EVP and Chief Operating Officer running the day-to-day operations of the host agency.
