Jen was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. Nature inspired her, whether it was hiking in the mountains or planting trees along river corridors. She graduated with a B.S. in Freshwater Ecology, from The Evergreen State College. She became interested in living roofs and rooftop gardening, drawing her to NYC. She is currently a Residential Foreman, and has been with Town and Gardens for 8 years. She loves exploring the Hudson Valley, eating good food, and traveling.
