Nashville City Director
Jen is new to Big Table but not to Nashville, having lived here for almost three decades. With over 10 years of experience leading a Care Department at a large church in town, she is ready to care for the city she loves in new ways.
Jen and her husband, Steve, met at YMCA day camp when 8 and 9 years old where they both remember couple skating on a rainy day to a popular 70s tune “Slow Dancin’ Swayin’ to the Music.” Living in different parts of town, they skipped their braces and puberty years before meeting again at 16 and 18 through a random encounter. They now have three kids in their 20s that are doing cool things in fun cities, so visiting them is a favorite pastime.
Jen doesn’t cook so the restaurant industry is particularly meaningful to her. She loves dark chocolate and has a small piece after every meal (yes, even after breakfast) to keep her sweet tooth in check.
