Jen was born and raised in WNY. She currently lives in Depew, NY. Jen originally graduated from SUNY Brockport in 2015 with a Bachelor’s in Exercise Science. She practiced as a fitness professional/personal trainer before deciding to return to school to pursue Occupational Therapy at the University at Buffalo. She chose OT because she wanted to utilize her knowledge of health and exercise to further impact the lives within her community in a more clinical role to enhance independence. Jen loves how OT uses creativity and activities that people enjoy through a clinical lens to improve their ability to complete day-to-day tasks. In her free time, Jen loves taking her dog, an Aussie named Oscar, for hikes, to dog parks, and even to outdoor breweries! She loves cooking, spending time with family, and trying new restaurants in Buffalo. She looks forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your goals!
