With a background in Journalism and Communications, Jen has been working in the Newfoundland and Labrador arts scene for over 10 years. Jen spent much of this time working with the Music Industry Association of Newfoundland and Labrador (MusicNL) as their Communications and Program Officer while acting as the Regional Educational Coordinator for the Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent on Recordings (FACTOR). She was honoured to receive the 2015 ‘Denis Parker Music Industry Builder Award’ namely for her work developing the youth focused ‘NewFound Talent Contest’. Jen left Newfoundland and Labrador to spend a few years travelling with Royal Caribbean Cruise lines working in their Arts and Entertainment Division as Cruise Program Administrator out of Miami, Florida.
