A 2013 Continental Champion, 2013 USA National Champion, two-time Washington State Golden Gloves winner and 2013 Outstanding Female Boxer at the Jr. Golden Gloves, Jen began amateur boxing in 2009 as a way to express herself through sport. Prior to boxing, Jen’s passion for the beautiful game lead to her Seattle University to play soccer for their women’s Division 1 soccer team.  Her last year in college, Jen also competed on SU’s track and cross country teams. But through injury and tentativeness, Jen didn’t have the college sports career that she had always dreamed of.  Enter boxing in 2009. Through boxing competition, she found a way to physically  experience some of the principles she took on in her formal philosophy studies (Seattle University B.A. 2009), including the ability to access power, fire and emotion and recognize personal reactions in the ring. Through boxing and community outreach projects, Jen is working to become more mentally and physically aware of herself and those around her, as well as learning how to take on matches both in and outside of the ring.

    Hello Jennifer, I was just reading your article in the Seattle U magazine. I think it’s fantastic that you have the drive to win the gold. As I was reading it, I have decided you really are going to win the gold. So, I want to be the first one to congratulate you on a job well done. I will be following your every move and will be at every fight you have. I want to be your biggest supporter. We have two things in common; I was a boxer myself for 3 yrs in high school and my first two years in college. I quit because I didn’t like getting beat up. But now I wish I had the courage to tough it out. Secondly, we both graduated from Seattle U. I graduated in 1989. I now am the owner of a private investigation agency and bail bond agency in Seattle. I wish you the best!! If you need anything don’t hesitate to ask.
