With information in hand, Jen got actively involved with her local support group in Wisconsin. Jen now serves as the Vice Chair of the Alpha-1 Association Board of Directors. Having graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a BS in Family & Consumer Journalism, Jen has written articles for her local support group as well as the Alpha-1 Association's Alpha-1 News. With past experience in the field of technical writing, Jen uses her communication and instructional design skills to help Association members diagnosed with Alpha-1. Writing is a passion of Jen's, and she often documents life with the "Alpha Girls" on her personal blog, Unique But Not Alone. In her professional life, Jen is a multimedia instructional designer for a financial services company, FIS, where she creates adult learning content for FIS's clients.
