About Jen:
Jen was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where she learned to talk and walk. Her family moved two years later to Deer Lodge, MT where she spent the early years riding bikes down her steep driveway, taking dance classes, playing piano, and making mud pies. Her family moved to Eagle, ID in the early 80s where she would join the neighborhood kids to explore the uninhabited hills and dig huge hole forts. She attended the University of Idaho where she met her husband, Tom, a Coeur d'Alene resident since 1973. After her husband's professional schooling in Omaha, NE, they returned to Coeur d'Alene to continue the family business and raise a family. Many years later with two kids and now a dog, she's happy to be part of a great healthcare team dedicated to getting family, friends, and strangers back to an active life.
