Hi, I’m Jen. Currently, I am working as a teacher and administrator in public education. Before changing careers, I worked in marketing and public relations. I have been with Foundry since the beginning. It is a privilege to be a part of lasting friendships, awe-inspiring creativity and generosity. I look forward to meeting you. Namaste
Every year Foundry depends on generous on-the-ground locals who are often Foundry alumni who dedicate their time for months before every workshop. Foundry workshops would not happen without these special people.
