Wahoos baseball games, arts festivals, and just walking up and down Palafox.

What piece of advice would you give to mothers right now?

Hang in there momma! We all lose ourselves a little when we become mothers, but that spitfire is still in there somewhere! Make sure you take time for her and let her out every now and then!

Tell us about your favorite thing to do in your downtime?

Jo RichSince I’m a makeup artist I really love to create new looks and just sit in front of the mirror and let my creativity bloom! There is something very peaceful and healing about being creative.

Anything else you would like us to know about yourself that makes you uniquely you?

I’m just a small-town Iowa girl now living in a small town in Florida! I’m a band nerd at heart and play the piano and drums as well. I have a deep passion for helping women feel their best and helping them see that they are beautiful. Inside and out!

The Navy brought Jen and her family to Pensacola in 2018 following a 3-year tour in Belgium. Born and raised in the Midwest, Jen’s career path took her to Washington, D.C., after college, where she lived until she married her husband, Tim, in 2007. Balancing family and career against the backdrop of military life has made her appreciate the importance of friendships, connections, and finding your “mom tribe” wherever “home” may be. While living in Belgium, Jen took on her most challenging role to date, that of a stay-at-home-mom to her two sons, Timothy and Charlie. In this position, she has been forced to face her fear of cooking, has learned that you never “catch up” on laundry and that she continuously works longer hours for less pay! Fueled by coffee, Pure Barre, and dry shampoo, she feels like she’s “winging it” when it comes to motherhood most of the time, but couldn’t imagine a more rewarding journey. She continues to learn from her kids every day.
