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.
