Company Coordinator, October 2021
Jen started dancing at a young age, training in tap, ballet, jazz, and modern dance. She continued dancing through college, but after that, she thought her dancing shoes were to be hung up forever.
After finishing up graduate school, Jen moved to Bloomington for a job at IU. Within her first few weeks in town, she found herself missing dance and looked around for a place to take adult classes. In the summer of 2019, she figured she’d try out a tap class, and since then she’s been a regular at Windfall.
Jen loves the welcoming community of Windfall and strongly believes in its mission. Bringing her passion for helping others, she is super excited to be working with the company as the company coordinator and looking forward to getting more involved in Windfall!
