Jenn’s proudest and most fulfilling moments are when she is digging in with her team on the strategic direction of Via Satellite and the SATELLITE Show and when she is able to visit one-on-one with the satellite community.

She is a member of the Society of Satellite Professionals International (SSPI), International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE) and Society of Independent Show Organizers (SISO) and completed ABM’s Advanced B-to-B Leadership Program.

She earned a B.A. in Journalism from Penn State University and returns to Penn State every year to guest lecture in their Event Management Course.
