Jen has been remarkably consistent in her drive, her desire to get things right, and her care for those around her. She gladly offers her time to help those around her grow and develop. She’s patient with questions, thorough in her responses, and genuinely cares about making those around her better at what they do. She wants to empower those around her with the knowledge, tools, and experiences that can help them, that can make them better, and she does her best to make that happen. If presented with a problem Jen will find a solution. Her tenacity is second to none. She’ll ask good questions, offer insight, and listen – truly listen – to the feedback of others.
If a project was intricate or a huge undertaking, Jen was the first person to volunteer. You could see the wheels already turning with solutions to problems that no one wanted to tackle. Something I admire most is that she has always been someone that is open to transfer knowledge to people willing and wanting to grow. She implemented many tools and developed reporting to help the company scale at a rapid rate. Once a tool was selected, she would become the expert and then train everyone else to use it. We moved at a fast pace, and she worked long hours to help everyone keep up and succeed.
Having worked with Jen on a number of high-level projects that demanded a wide swath of expertise and talents to execute properly, I can confidently say I've never met anyone who I can lean on so reliably when my own skills as a Sr. Data Analyst aren't enough. Jen is a one-woman army who can take any project thrown at her and no matter how new of a concept or how far along in the project we were, she could adapt and become an expert seemingly overnight and often was the "spark" that rallied together people and projects that had hit a wall and stalled and not only saw them through to completion, but also independently took on the task to fix and streamline any other hurdles that might prevent success even after we hand off the completed work. I can think of no better way to describe her than "terrifyingly competent" at any task she sets her sights on.
