As the Director of Event Marketing, Jen gets to combine her passion for content marketing with her love of event strategy in order to build an expansive, educated, and delighted audience. Jen has witnessed the benefits of the inbound philosophy first-hand, having led content marketing efforts at a growing technology company. After getting her start in content creation as an editor in the publishing world, she ran a thriving publishing services agency for 10 years. (She enjoys heated grammar discussions almost as much as she loves to write!) A graduate of Illinois Wesleyan University and an avid fan of mid-century modern design and all things science fiction, Jen lives in the Chicago suburbs with her husband, son, and a quirky Jack Russell terrier, who are all in the process of making a 100-year-old farmhouse their own.
