As a graduate from Parsons Paris in 2008 with a degree in Business and Design Management, Jen gained employment in many areas including interior design, commercial real estate, private equity, and luxury goods. She later landed in the jewelry industry, where she spent over seven years performing as an Executive and Personal Assistant to high level executives for luxury brands such as Tiffany & Co., Roberto Coin and most recently David Yurman. All these chapters from start-ups to established companies have aided in helping Jen become the self-starter that she is today, while allowing her to utilize her creative skills such as photography, writing, event planning and social media management for various global brands.
During the pandemic, Jen left the West Village of NYC to settle in the suburbs of Red Bank, NJ, after nearly two decades of global city dwelling. During this time she took on supporting roles at privately owned startup companies, as well as in the hospitality industry for Chef David Burke at multiple New Jersey locations. These jobs were challenging during the pandemic period, but served as an outlet for connecting with humans again. They also allowed her to continue her administrative path after a collectively difficult time for the planet, when New York City was completely devastated by the virus. Jen was happy to be interacting, managing executives, coordinating events, and gaining further knowledge about the food and beverage industry.
