Prior to boxing, Jen’s passion for the beautiful game lead her to Seattle University to play soccer for their women’s Division 1 soccer team. Jen also competed on SU’s track and cross country teams. But through injury and tentativeness, Jen didn’t have the college sports career that she had always dreamed of.
Enter boxing in 2009…
Jen began amateur boxing in 2009 as a way to express herself through sport. Through boxing competition, she found a way to physically experience some of the principles she took on in her formal philosophy studies (Seattle University B.A. 2009), including the ability to access power, fire and emotion and recognize personal reactions in the ring. Through boxing and community outreach projects, Jen is working to become more mentally and physically aware of herself and those around her, as well as learning how to take on matches both in and outside of the ring.
Jen has since amassed a 31-4 record in the women’s amateur boxing 125 lbs. weight division, including wins in both the 2013 National and 2013 Intercontinental Championships. Due to medical issues, Jen turned professional on July 11th 2014 on an ESPN Fight Night card where she is currently 1-0.
