Jen is a Philadelphia native, living in the suburbs for most of her life until she moved to Manayunk 6 years ago. She has had a passion for fitness and nutrition for most of her life—one of the few kids at daycare that actually *liked* to eat her vegetables! In high school she danced and played intramural volleyball and in college continued to dance and found a passion for TRX and step aerobics. Jen has always enjoyed recreationally running; she is a member of the Manayunk Beer Runners group, and recently completed her first Half Marathon.

Jen graduated from Immaculata University with a degree in Marketing and minored in Business & Entrepreneurship. She was fortunate enough to obtain a job in her field, but being a people-person and enjoying being active, she soon found that a desk job was not for her. She self-studied for the NASM CPT exam and is now a Certified Personal Trainer. Jen is constantly learning and continuing her education so she can be informed and provide the best training for clients that are at any point in their fitness journeys. She believes that fitness should be energetic and fun but of course, change never occurs without a challenge!

Certifications/Courses: NASM-CPT, CPR/AED, Geriatric Functional Strengthening
