New York Sales & Support
A truly native New Yorker, Jen was born in Brooklyn and has lived in New York and New Jersey almost all of her life. Exposed to the garment industry in Manhattan at 16 and enamored by it, she was destined to work in the apparel and textile industries.
Jen began working for Concept III Textiles in 1992, right after graduating from Philadelphia College of Textiles & Science (now Philadelphia University) where she majored in business. She loves her job. Whenever she is asked about it or the outdoor industry, you can hear the enthusiasm in her voice. She will point out the “good, down to earth” people with which she works and they will tell you their collaboration is more like working with a friend than a business associate.
Jen’s expertise in helping customers develop successful performance apparel products from innovative fabrics is only surpassed by her dedication to customer service.
Jen, her husband Chris and their son and daughter are “all about being outdoors.” They ride bikes together, hike together and summer vacations are often in a National Park. Jen coaches her daughter’s soccer team and acts as “team mom” for her son’s team for which husband Chris is the coach. Jen also loves to run. She gets out the door at 4:55 a.m. every weekday, rain, shine or in the dark. Jen is proud to have run 2 full marathons.
