about Jennifer

I’m Jennifer or Jen (but never Jenny, Forrest Gump ruined that nickname for me) and I’m the Director of Marketing, hailing from sunny Seattle, Washington. I graduated from the University of Washington (go Huskies) with a BA in Communication, a BA in Political Sciences, and an MBA in Marketing. I’ve been in the marketing field for 23 years and have had the opportunity to work for clients and companies in a wide range of industries from travel, to real estate, to technology, to retail as well as numerous eCommerce startups and corporate entities. I found my calling working with small businesses and haven’t returned to “cubeville” since.The story of my journey to Santa Fe is an interesting one that is best told over cocktails, preferably by a fire pit on a warm summer night. As an introverted Italian (yes, we do exist and hold support meetings on Tuesdays) I enjoy spending time with my two four-legged children, besties, and colleagues when working remotely (they know all the juicy gossip and are great at keeping secrets). My happy place and creative outlet is playing with power tools and wood, revitalizing old or discarded furniture pieces and incorporating some type of modern design element. I also love to go wine tasting (I am Italian), listen to live music (I’m a product of the 90s grunge era) and explore the trails of New Mexico (when it’s sunny… I don’t do cold weather).
