Staff Spotlight: Jen

Meet Jen! Jen is our ReStore Director. She oversees operations and sales at the store.

Jen started working at the ReStore in April 2022. “I was a customer of the ReStore prior to my employment. My Fiancé and I have bought so much from the store to fix up our house on a budget. I can honestly say I was jumping up and down when I found out that I was going to be working at one of my favorite stores. I knew my bank account would suffer, but it has been well worth it!”

When asked what she loves about Habitat, Jen said, “I love that we help people and make a positive difference in our customers’ and homeowners’ lives. My favorite moments are attending the home dedications. I cry like a baby every time! It’s such a beautiful thing to see our hard work make a difference.”

So what makes Jen passionate about her work? “My staff and staff at the home office. We all work together for the same goal. I have never met more caring people in my life. Also, our customers! They make my day every day. Some of them have become a second family to us because of how often they shop and support us.”

When Jen isn’t working at the ReStore, she enjoys spending time in nature with her family and dogs. She also really enjoys learning and expanding her knowledge. She loves to research.

Fun Fact: “I am always singing a song in my head. I love music!”

Come shop at the Rockford ReStore, say hello to Jen! We are located on Harrison Avenue across from CherryVale Mall.
