Jen was born and raised in the Iowa Great Lakes. She’s married to Michael and has three wonderful kids-Brittany, Branden, Rylee, one son-in-law, one daughter-in-law, two labrador dogs-aka-“the boys,” Dirka and Baloo.
She started working with Great Lakes Dental Associates as a dental assistant at the end of November 2020. She has years of background knowledge as a Surgical Tech. She’s also involved with the Dickinson Co. 4-H and serves on the Dickinson Co. Fair Queen Committee. During her time off, you’ll usually find her at her daughter’s basketball or softball games, watching her show her 4-H calves at fairs or a cattle show. If she’s not at any of those events, she may be just with family hanging out with her siblings, parents, or both.
