Jenn manages the front desk and will greet you upon arrival. More than likely she will be the one who answers the phone when you call. Jenn previously worked for 7 years at an Eye Doctor's office in Ohio. This explains why she continues to be a Cleveland Browns fan. She is also an Ohio State Buckeyes fan which needs no explanation. (Isn't everyone?) Jenn likes to cook and bake, loves camping and spending summer days by her pool with her son, daughter and husband.
