“Inclusion is acknowledging that we’re all different but understanding that we all have the same value and we all deserve the same opportunities.”

Jen comes to KIT with 13 years of experience in the arts education and arts administration fields. Most recently, Jen was the Director of Programs at Unified Theater, managing inclusive theater education programs for youth. This bridge between the performing arts and inclusion was the impetus for Jen’s move to KIT! Jen has experience with several theater companies in program management and evaluation, community engagement and partnerships, theater education, and teaching. She has a BA from Drew University and an MA from The Ohio State University. Jen lives in Connecticut with her husband and son and if she’s not making herself go for a run, she’s usually curled up with a book or trying to keep her three crazy cats from destroying her house.
