A peek into Jen's life:

Profession: Executive Director of Racquetball Manitoba - Racquetball Canada National Team Athlete

Born in: 1976

Favourite GORP Flavour: Cocoa Hemp & Almond

Why GORP? GORP Clean Energy Bars are by far my favourite. They taste great. Full of healthy real ingredients. Packed with protein. Great re-sealable packing. And best of all made with care in Manitoba! I take em everywhere I go. Especially when travelling the globe to play racquetball. It's always great to have a reliable, healthy snack from HOME!

Your Inspiration: Wayne Gretzky

If you could be an animal: Cat - eat, sleep and cuddle

I'm happiest when: I'm hanging out with my awesome boyfriend.

My favourite meal is: Pizza

On my day off: Jets game - pizza - wine

In my bag: Nikes - Pro Kennex Racquets - MPG socks - GORP bars

My motto/philosophy is: Why not me?

I wind down by: Doing a crossword puzzle

My friends call me: Jenny - JTK

Proudest accomplishment: Holding the record for the most National titles by any Canadian female - 9!

Favourite place in the world: Any scenic golf course.

Most awkward party trick: I can juggle.... comes from too many kids and not enough racquetball courts when I was first learning to play.
