Meet Jen

When Jen’s children were young, she experienced a challenging time in her life. She needed to look for employment but was unsure what skills she brought to the workforce. Jen’s search led her to Goodwill NCW. Throughout her 12-year career path at Goodwill NCW, Jen has grown professionally in ways she never imagined.

“To be able to have an impact on people’s development and show them that they are valued is what makes working here so rewarding. If I can be a part of the mission and what we do to help folks for even a minute, that’s just awesome,” Jen said.
