Jen has been working at Broydrick & Associates, Milwaukee office for the last four years. She is the Office and Billing Manager, as well as the Federal Contracting Specialist for their office. Recently she has worked to federally certify Broydrick & Associates as a Women-owned Small Business. This allows them the opportunity to bid for government and client contracts with specific set-assides for WOSB’s.

Jen has over fifteen years of managerial experience, starting as a supervisor at a political polling firm in Utah. She also served as the Office & Billing Manager and HIPAA Compliance Specialist for a psychiatric medical practice, and later Milwaukee’s Argosy Foundation before joining Broydrick & Associates.

Jen graduated with honors from the Community Leadership program at Alverno College, and holds a bachelor’s degree in Community Leadership and Non-Profit Business Management. She has a strong eye for detail, and a specialty in compliance, contracting and keeping track of financial details.

"My experience in the CLD program helped me expand my abilities and create new opportunities for myself in my position at Broydrick & Associates, a Government Relations and PR firm in Milwaukee. I began working for them as a receptionist four years ago. Through the skills I developed in the program, I was quickly promoted to Office and Billing Manager, and now to also being our Federal Contracting Specialist. I was able to apply the business management skills and concepts that I learned, such as accounting and marketing, and also incorporated the political science aspects of the curriculum to my position. Finally as I learned about community structure and organizations, I was able to use that knowledge to find ways to help our company network and grow within Milwaukee. I feel that the CLD program at Alverno was key in the growth of my career and personal development."
