Director, Member Development

Jen is responsible for forging a community out of BioOhio’s nearly 300 members — planning activities and events, coordinating benefits and cost-savings programs, and overseeing recruitment and member-to-member connections. Jen’s goal is to ensure that value and a great experience continue to be created and retained for member investors, which will help bolster and convene the life science industry across the state. Born and raised in Ohio, Jen attended Bowling Green State University and completed her interpersonal communications degree with an internship at Walt Disney World. She spent some time in Tallahassee, Florida, working as a blood drive coordinator for the local blood center and then as a stewardship program and events director at Florida State University Foundation before returning to Ohio and joining BioOhio in 2007.

Jen loves the outdoors, enjoying activities such as hiking, biking, paddleboarding, and camping. She is also a singer, songwriter, and banjo player for her newgrass band, The Goldsberrys. Originally formed as a duo with her husband, the 4-piece band has released three albums, which you can find on any digital streaming source.
