Jen was born in Montreal and has been migrating steadily westward ever since. After twenty years of living in Canmore, where her two sons were early participants in the Forest Play program, she now enjoys life and adventures on Vancouver Island with her unruly family and dog. She still has deep connections in Canmore and often returns to visit.
Jen loves being outdoors, exploring on foot, snowboard, paddleboard, or bike, but also has a strange affection for bookkeeping. She has been looking after the books for Forest Play since 2015.
