Another long-time employee of Front Range, Jen has coached at FRVBC since 1995. Also an alumna of Front Range, Jen played collegiate volleyball at The University of New Orleans from 1991 to 1994. In 1995 she was the Head Coach of the Englewood HS volleyball program, and was an assistant coach at Colorado Christian University in 1996.

Jen's coaching career at Front Range includes coaching 14 Amber for two seasons, 16 Red for two seasons, 18 Gold for two seasons, 17 Silver for two seasons, 13 Scarlet from 2011-2013, 12 Pink from 2005-2010 as well as the 2014 season, and 16-1 Blue for the 2015-16 season. She has also assisted at numerous Qualifiers as well as at JO’s, including the 2002 18 Open Gold Medal and 2005 16 Open Gold Medal teams.

Jen has experienced unprecedented success coaching younger ages in the RMR. In addition to winning an RMR championship with 14 Amber in 1997, Jen led 12 Pink to an RMR championship in 2007. More notable than her success in the region is her achievement on the national scene. In 2007, Jen guided 12 Pink to two podium finishes at national qualifiers, a feat unequaled by any other 12's team in the region's history. 12 Pink garnered a Silver medal and a Bronze medal at Northern Lights and Crossroads respectively. She repeated her feat in 2009 when she led 12 Pink to two Silver medal finishes and a berth at JO’s.

In 2014 Jen took over FRVBC’s 16 Blue team, coaching them to a top 25 finish at the AAU National Championships in Orlando, Florida. During the 2015 season Jen earned a regional bid and coached 16 Blue to a top 10 finish at the Girls Junior National Championships in New Orleans.

In addition to coaching, Jen is also a full-time employee at Front Range as the club’s Assistant Executive Director.
