Philosophy professor, paddler and oceans advocate working with LOF to develop the environmental ethics lessons for LOF!
Jen grew up in Miami, Florida where she first developed her passion for the ocean and water sports. She went to graduate school in New York City where she also learned to paddle in a kayak with the Hoboken Cove Boathouse club where she then became a volunteer instructor and certified trip leader. She has also volunteered as an instructor with the Yonkers Paddle and Canoe Club.
Jen has been teaching college philosophy classes for 18 years at various schools throughout the New York/New Jersey area. During which time, she has become convinced that children could benefit greatly from the study of philosophy; it can grow their critical thinking and logic skills. As well as teaching children how to answer the question, ‘Why?’
Jen moved to New Haven, CT from the NYC area in 2019 so she could live closer to the shore and rivers that she loves so much. And is making the most of her new location! When not teaching, she is either out paddling on the Long Island Sound with Milford Canoe Club, gardening in her community plot, docenting at Meigs Point Nature Center, or working on the Preserves Committee for Gather New Haven (formerly New Haven Land Trust).
At Meigs Point Nature Center in Hammonasset State Park, Jen helps guide the canoe trips, feeds the fish, and presents eco-system programs. She also is working on becoming a certified Level 2 Kayak instructor, and hopes to win an outrigger canoe race this season with her club in Milford.
