Jen Renye

Daycare Attendant

Jennifer fell into her life of working with dogs when she was presented with a position in a boarding kennel right after her high school graduation. From there, she wanted to be more involved in the dogs' lives so she moved on to working at an animal shelter and started dog sitting. Now, five years later, she has found her place at The Confident Canine! Outside of work, Jennifer spends a lot of time learning new art forms. One of her favorite art forms is making jewelry with polymer clay. As a beginner artist, she got a few of her beginner friends together to start the Spirit of Spirals Collective. Her other favorite art form is dance, more specifically hula hoop dance and other flow arts. Jennifer has also spent some time studying Environmental Science at RVCC. She hopes to learn more about the environment and our effects on its creatures, and she hopes to continue working with animals in the future.
