Upon graduating with a Bachelors Degree in Photography with a Communications emphasis from Grand Valley State University in April of 2007 I immediately went on to open my own photography studio, Shutterbug Photography by Jen. After 9 wonderful years in business I stepped away to raise my young family.
After becoming a mother I became more aware of what I was putting in and on my body and that of my child. In 2016 I went back to school and received my Health Coaching certification in pregnancy, pediatrics, and family nutrition from Dr. Sears Wellness Institute. After years of experience in the customer service industry, marketing, and business management coupled with my passion for creativity, and natural health, I found myself drawn to Grand Rapids Natural Health. I knew I had to be a part of what they were doing for the West Michigan Community. After presenting my skill set and desire to support Owner, Kelly Peterson’s dream, I found my calling as our Marketing Specialist, Community Outreach Director, and have now moved on to my new role as Office Manager.
I continue to work diligently to implement the skills I have acquired over the years and put them to good use at Grand Rapids Natural Health as well as continuing with my photography and web design services as the GRNH in-house photographer.
In my free time, I enjoy traveling with my husband Matt and son Asa, spending time with my friends, family, and my pets, interior decorating, being on the water, and working on my handmade jewelry. I am a passionate board member of the non profit organization Paradise Rescue PR and love being a part of their mission to find health care and forever homes for the street dogs of Puerto Rico. I look forward to continuing my journey with Grand Rapids Natural Health alongside my talented coworkers as we continue to grow within the Grand Rapids community and beyond.
