Hi, I’m Jen. I live in St. Louis with my dog, Loki and our roommates Clark and Belka the Wonder Dog. I moved to St. Louis in 2008 to go to Lindenwood University where I completed my Bachelors of Interactive Media and Web Design in 2012.
Currently, I work full time as a Senior Web Specialist for Centene Corporation. Centene, a Fortune 100 company, provides a portfolio of services to government-sponsored healthcare programs (ie. Medicare, Medicaid, and Health Insurance Marketplace), focusing on under-insured and uninsured individuals. I spend my days there making the web friendlier for humans of all ability levels.
When I have a spare moment, I love to sew, play with my dog, bake, and organize and speak at meetups and WordCamps for my local St. Louis WordPress Community. For 2019 and 2020, I am an organizer for WordCamp US, the largest WordCamp in North America. I also enjoy spending time volunteering at Blank Canvas Studios, an art-based day program for adults with disabilities.
