Jen Alvis’ career path started in the field of Vocational Rehabilitation and she worked in both local and National non-profits. Jen has been in several roles from direct client services, service delivery management to Government procurement (products and services). During the course of her career Jen was always an early adopter of technology and saw the positive impact that current technology had for manufacturing and service. This led Jen to becoming a process improvement consultant with a concentration on cloud technology. For the past eight years she has done private consulting and recently worked at Accenture and Cohesion.
The single thread in Jen’s career has been about bringing resources and tools to the disadvantaged. She has helped hundreds of people move to financial independence through employment and life skills coaching. In addition to working with people Jen has managed over 25 process improvement and mapping initiatives that have led non profit organizations towards self sustainability.
Her first love of place started when she was age 6 at Camp Lenmary. This small camp in Indiana gave Jen a taste of life away from her parents and grounds to discover her self identity. She spent seven summers at this camp and learned that she is calmed in the presence of a horse, mud sliding in the rain is epic, you should always leave a place in better condition than you found it and that true friendships and self character are forged through challenging life experiences. So, Jen is well aligned with Camp Joy DNA.
Jen and her partner live in Wyoming and have two children. In her “free time” Jen hits the road, hiking trails, or a good book (unless the Broncos are playing).
