Meet Jenn, the mastermind behind the products you know and love. When she's not concocting a new recipe in the test kitchen or helping with the brand vision, Jenn loves being outside and taking in the small things with her family.
What's your favorite quote or motto?
I have two favorites: "A person's a person, no matter how small" ~Dr. Seuss "Everyone who lives within their means suffers from lack of imagination" ~Oscar Wilde
If you had a theme song that played every time you walked into a room what would it be?
Oh man, there are too many good ones to choose just one! I'm a sucker for classics and there's two I love: Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress~The Hollies Born to be Wild ~Steppenwolf
If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?
Depending on the pot, depends on what I would do. Step one would be to pay for my children's education, sock away enough for retirement, give a substantial amount to a charity that protects and empowers young women and if there's enough left over, I'd travel the world and see what I've missed out on all these years.
What's your favorite FlapJacked memory?
There are so many, and I'm so thankful for each and every one of them, but if I had to choose, my favorite was our company hike two years ago in Rocky Mountain National Park. We locked the office doors and took everyone to the mountains for beautiful scenery, fresh air and lots of laughs. It was refreshing to get to know each other on a deeper level. I wish we could do that all the time.
If you were stuck on an island with only 3 possessions, what would they be?
1) A fire starter (because I was never a girl scout and I'm cold all the time). 2) A laminated recent photo of my family. 3) The biggest vat of peanut butter I could get my hands on because... peanut butter!
Who/what is an inspiration in your life?
Professionally, Mauro Porcini, Chief Design Officer at PepsiCo has been a huge inspiration to me throughout my design career. I've admired what Mauro has done with Design in large CPG. His vision is crisp, his direction is clear and his persona as a leader has been nothing short of magical. I had the pleasure of meeting with him at several conferences and leader roundtables and have come out inspired every time. Personally, My children. Children inspire me in many ways. They inspire me to laugh, to appreciate, to speak up, to love and trust. Viewing the world through a child's eyes is so meaningful and innocent. They learn through our behavior and that inspires me to be a better person for myself and for them.
Complete this sentence, "When life gives you lemons, you..."
Laugh like hell and know that "this too shall pass".
What’s your favorite guilty pleasure food?
Chocolate and pizza. But not together. That would be gross.
If you could teleport anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?
Palau's Rock Islands. I've always wanted to go there. It's beautiful, the islands look like broccoli and I've never been there. It's also a 24-28-hour trip to get there so teleporting would be super handy.
If you had a superpower, what would it be?
Mind reader. It would be interesting (and scary) to get inside people's thoughts.
Tell us something we’d never guess about you.
I could barefoot waterski in my 20’s and I used to be a metalhead! I LOVED heavy metal music and attended countless metal concerts but now it just gives me a headache! LOL.
How do you stay active?
I ran for years but can't run anymore so I walk a lot and lift heavy things up and down.
If you were an animal, which animal would you be?
A dinosaur. I would love to see what our world look like before our civilization existed.
