“As women, it's so important that we support each other and lift each other up. I strive to amplify other women's voices, bring more women to the table, and advocate for women's career advancement,” says Jen. “I also try to show up as my authentic self. Hopefully, this will show others that you don't have to fit into a specific mold to be successful.”
