Director of Services

Jenny is a Colorado Springs native and grew up immersed in military culture. She brings a diverse professional background to Task Force Dagger with a wealth of military and first responder mental health knowledge. With an innate sense of compassion, intuition, and a no-nonsense approach to finding the right level of care, Jenny is incredibly vested in the mission of TFD and serving those who so faithfully served their country.

After graduating from the University of Colorado with a bachelor’s degree in history education, with a minor in archaeology and geology, Jenny decided to pursue a career in law enforcement in Colorado Springs. While working in the largest jail in the state of Colorado, Jenny first witnessed the effects of trauma and post-traumatic stress injuries in the military and first responder community. Wanting to understand better the individuals she served and worked alongside, she dedicated herself to improving the lives of others and became a voracious researcher on mental health. Jenny became involved in veteran homeless outreach, furthering her knowledge of post-traumatic growth, and became a staunch advocate for mental health resources.

After a diverse career in law enforcement, Jenny shifted her focus to a career in education, working with elementary-age children with trauma and special needs. Jenny has extensive knowledge of working with children with various intellectual, emotional, and behavioral needs. Jenny’s interest in trauma-informed care has helped her to work with individuals of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds, and she embraces varied modalities of care based on the needs of the individual.

In 2023, Jenny’s family had the privilege of participating in TFD’s signature Rehabilitative Adaptive Event, Dagger Dive. Providing her with a firsthand understanding of the profound impact TFD has on wounded veterans and their families. Jenny, a mother of four, has a zest for life, evident in her love for cooking, exploring the wilderness and water, and her infectious laughter.
