Work Hive Member Profile: Jen Parravani

jensmallJen is a brand and communications specialist committed to telling positive and inspiring stories in her work at Mission Continues – a non-profit organization designed to help veterans adjust to life back home through community engagement projects. She is currently learning the expansive list of acronyms that surround military life, and enjoying having found her vibe after working in her not-so-preferred areas of sales and PR. Jen earned her degree from James Madison University in media arts and design and completed an additional degree in sociology.

New to Salt Lake City, and a New York native, Jen is discovering a new world of outdoors in Utah’s landscape. She is quickly finding hiking and camping (camping being on her list of never been) to be part of a typical lifestyle here in the west. Jen spends much of her time caring for her two furry children – a terrier mix and a newly adopted Australian mix. She loves to read, and just finished the 8th Harry Potter book. Brunch, mimosas and Netflix occupy part of her free time, at least for now, as she will be beginning a grad school program in the next few week. Bye bye Netflix binges.

Some quick facts about Jen:
Daytime beverage: A shameless addiction to Diet Coke
Evening beverage: Wine, particulary Chardonnay, and always finds a reason to celebrate with Prosecco
Favorite Lunch: Sushi
