Jen has been a professional staff member at the Department of Housing since November 2003. As associate director, she oversees a number of the department's functions, such as marketing, technology, facility projects and main office reception. In addition, she is responsible for departmental assessment. For Jen, the most rewarding part about being the associate director is working with a talented staff that strives to fulfill the department's mission and the university's mission to make DePaul's residence halls a great place to live.
She values the numerous opportunities that students and staff have at DePaul, and how DePaul is a community where anyone can find their niche! Jen is an active member of the DePaul Women’s Network, serves as a staff mentor for Chicago Quarter classes and has served on various university committees.
Jen holds a bachelor's degree in communication and a master's degree in recreation, parks, and tourism administration, both from Western Illinois University. In her spare time, Jen fosters cats from PAWS Chicago, cheers for her beloved Cubs, travels and spends time with friends and family.
