Jen got involved with ZERO several years ago as a daughter, fundraiser, and advocate while her father was fighting prostate cancer. Her family’s team, Warren’s Warriors, ran the Boston Run/Walk to show her dad that he was not alone. She also attended the Annual Advocacy Summit on Capitol Hill for two years to share her story with her elected officials and the importance of prostate cancer research funding. Her blue hair was her unique way to raise awareness for prostate cancer. Answering frequent questions about her hair color proved to be the perfect opportunity to show her support and educate others about the disease.
When the opportunity to join the ZERO team became available, it was a natural fit for Jen who wanted to do more to end the disease that took her father’s life. She doesn’t want any more daughters and sons to lose their fathers. Her compassion and desire to help save lives started at the American Red Cross working on their health and safety team. Before joining ZERO, Jen spent 15 years in the juvenile products industry identifying pain points in parenting and creating top-selling products to reduce stress for babies, children, and parents.
Jen works closely with ZERO’s CEO and executive team – as well as the operations and events teams – and her discipline and organization helps everything at ZERO run smoothly. When she’s not educating, raising awareness, and fighting prostate cancer in her father’s memory, she’s baking cupcakes with her son or watching The Office with her husband. She’s also got a music library filled with grunge music and one hit wonders from the 80’s. Whether you are ready to rock blue hair or just want to connect, reach out to Jen to see how you can be part of our ZERO community.
