About Ms. Jen
Ms. Jen started working at Bruce Vento in 2019 and will be in her second year this 2020-21 school year. She graduated with a Masters in Social Work from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2013 and has been a school social worker ever since. This will be Ms. Jen's eighth year as a school social worker.
When she isn't at school (or virtual school), Ms. Jen likes to cook for herself and her friends. Her mom is an excellent cook and has taught Ms. Jen many skills over the past 10 years. Ms. Jen also likes to read, watch TV shows, garden, do house projects, and spend time with friends and family. This year, she is growing watermelon in her garden and has loved watching them grow.
Ms. Jen loves living in Saint Paul where she is friends with her neighbors. The majority of her family lives in the Twin Cities, except her twin brother who lives in Colorado.
Working at Bruce Vento has been a joy for Ms. Jen, as she loves having a team of two other social workers and having amazing coworkers. The team at Bruce Vento truly looks for the best ways to help our students succeed and feel welcomed and safe at school. Ms. Jen wants all kids to feel safe at home and at school and sees the value in helping students find the best way to advocate for themselves.
