Director of Policy and Programming
Coalition to Stop Gun Violence
As Director of Policy and Programming, Jen leads our state movement building efforts across the country. She is responsible for developing our policy priorities, strategies, and policy and technical support for state partners. She provides and translates public health research for advocates, stakeholders, and partners to support local efforts throughout the country to reduce gun deaths and injuries. Jen is currently a Fellow with the Bloomberg American Health Initiative and completing her MPH at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
Prior to her role at CSGV, Jen fed her passion at the local level. She helped start the first Maryland Moms Demand Action chapter in early 2013. She became the Legislative Director of Marylanders to Prevent Gun Violence, a small, grassroots advocacy organization, in 2015 and began leading the organization soon after.
When she is not working to end gun violence, Jen enjoys baking, reading, and spending time with her two kids.
