Jenn joined CYM in 2015 as the Coordinator of Athletics. She is responsible for the organization and implementation of all our athletics from NADCYM interparish leagues in track, soccer, volleyball, and basketball, to Southern Indiana Catholic teams in football, cheer, wrestling, and tennis. She is a loving wife of 15 years to her husband David with whom she has two sons: Quin and Jack – so most of her time is spent on baseball fields, basketball courts, football gridirons, and boxing rings. As one not being graced with athleticism herself, the irony of a life spent in sports is not lost on her.  However, when she’s not living the boys’ life, she enjoys takeout and the solitude that a binge marathon on Hulu brings.
