As an LMSW, Jen’s main focus is to provide competent case management and counseling services to the LGBTQ+ community in addition to providing training and education services to local organizations, schools, community centers, and non- profits.

Originally from Cincinnati, OH, Jen moved to Albany in July 2006 with her wife, Kelly, after graduating with a Bachelor’s of Science in Criminal Justice from Eastern Kentucky University. It was in college that Jen began her advocacy work with the LGBTQ+ community, serving in various roles of EKU’s Pride Alliance as well as organizations in the community.

Jen obtained her Master’s Degree in Social work from the University at Albany and has worked at various non-profits throughout the Albany area. Becoming an LMSW, Jen is excited to provide case management and counseling services to the LGBTQ+ community.

Jen is excited to continue her career at the Pride Center where she can give back to the community that has given so much to her.
