Jenn is an avid singer/songwriter and is passionate about justice, leadership and unleashing people to become who they were created to be. In her free time, you can find her exploring NYC, reading, writing, making music or doing anything creative (like renovating a cottage in the woods or convincing everyone to play a game).

You can do the work of God by using what He’s already put in your hands.
