Tell us a little bit about yourself

Hi! I am Jenny and love to paddleboard. Since discovering paddleboarding 7 years ago, you will find me on my board in the lakes and reservoirs of Colorado all season long. Sometimes I'm pushing for a workout doing a fast athletic shoreline paddle, sometimes you'll find me hiding from wind and going with the flow as much as possible, and sometimes I'll be laying down just coasting. I'm often with my golden retriever, Copper, who is THE BEST paddleboard buddy. His other name is Pet Rock.

I was born in Chicago and grew up spending summers in Canada on Lake of the Woods, Ontario. The water is in my soul and I am drawn to it like one may be drawn to go to church. Professionally, I am a metalsmith and jewelry designer and have been making handcrafted personalized jewelry for my customers for over 15 years. I live in Centennial with my husband, 2 kids, 2 dogs and a cat. I'm happy to be here and share my passion for the sport of paddleboarding!
