Jen has a track record of working to improve her community. She is in her fourth year as President of the Aksarben/Elmwood Park Neighborhood Association. She has worked with Keep Omaha Beautiful and also with the Public Works Department on the annual Spring and Fall Clean Up weekends at Baxter Arena. In all her volunteer work, Jen is an advocate for her neighbors — in Midtown and beyond. She believes Omaha deserves City Council leaders who are committed to collaboration and communication. This spirit of transparency is how Jen intends to renew trust between our city government and residents, including homeowners, renters, and businesses.
Jen is a proven leader in business. She earned a Bachelors of Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting from Kent State University. She spent many years with a Fortune 100 company as a manufacturing controller. Currently, Jen is part of a cross functional global IT team, focusing on accounting and procurement processes. She has built relationships with teammates and system users in the UK, Hong Kong, Latin America, and locally. Her skills navigating cross-cultural business relationships will translate to diplomacy and a spirit of cooperation on Omaha’s City Council. Jen is happy to have called Omaha her home since 2010. She is passionate about the restoration of her home, shopping local, the Cleveland Browns, and being an active member of her community.
