Jen has worked in the Roseville area schools for the past 17 years as a teacher, literacy coach, and equity leader. She earned her B.A. from Luther College in Elementary Education and her Masters in Education from Hamline University. She found her way to Circus Juventas through her two circus children. When she’s not chatting in the parent viewing area, Jen can be found assisting, managing, and coordinating all things circus behind the front desk. In Jen’s very sparse spare time, she goes on grand adventures with her family in their minivan. Together, they have visited over 80 national parks. You can find her signature needlefelt crafts, including her adorable gnomes and fairies, on Facebook under Traveling Tomten.
