Founder & Lead Strategist
Jen has been passionately involved in the Twin Cities building industry for 15-plus years. From sales and marketing to strategic brand development and curating new business for clients, she has helped builders, architects, interior designers, and many other trade partners grow their businesses with strategic solutions. Actively involved in the industry’s associations and trade organizations, she acts as the face to many of her clients; wearing their hats and connecting them as any good “match-maker” would. When she is not working with her fabulous team, or coming up with new strategies for her clients, she is happy to be home with her hubby and spoiled Westie either enjoying their “empty nester” space or cooking up something fabulous to eat, golfing, pilates, yoga, and spending time at the lake with her kids, family, and friends is what she loves to do the most!
