Nature Preschool Teacher
Jen is a graduate of Temple University in her hometown of Philadelphia, where she majored in Biology and minored in Dance. After first pursuing a dance career and touring the country with Sesame Street Live, she ended up in NYC. She then switched gears and did an internship at the Bronx Zoo, launching her career in Zoo Education. From NYC to DC and the National Zoo, she moved to Minneapolis and began working as a Naturalist at the Minnesota Zoo. After 20 years of teaching and developing curriculum as the Coordinator of Early Childhood and Family Programs, Jen is happy to be part of the Minneapolis Nature Preschool community, and grateful for the opportunity to connect children to the natural world while experiencing its awe and wonder through their eyes.
