FUN FACT: Jen’s favorite animal is the sea turtle, which symbolizes endurance and longevity and reminds us almost anything can be achieved one step (or flipper stroke) at a time. In 2013, Jen completed the 1.5-mile swim from San Francisco’s Alcatraz landmark to Aquatic Park. Thirty minutes into the swim, a 15-year-old had won the race and Jen was not sure she was any closer to shore than when she started. She remembered her mantra to “just keep swimming,” and she did—all the way to the finish line.
