Jennifer Morgan initially came to work at Discovery Ranch for Girls in 2018 after spending three years as a field staff working for a wilderness therapy program in Southern Utah. Jenn believes firmly that “going to wilderness CAN change your life, but working wilderness WILL change your life!” She will forever be grateful for what working within the outdoor industry has taught her and she couldn’t imagine life without working and supporting adolescents in their journey through life. And that’s how Jenn started her career at DRG. After mentoring for a few months, she quickly transitioned into the Assistant Recreation Director position. She had also been one of DRG’s Yoga Instructors.
Jenn has recently become one of our Residential Coordinators at DRG. She is excited to have her first “9 to 5” ever in her 30 years of life and is looking forward to finding new ways to influence the lives of DRG’s teenagers and their parents.
Prior to settling in Southern Utah, Jenn grew up in Houston, Texas and quickly followed her love of adventure and the outdoors to Colorado Springs when she turned 18. She has Bachelor Degrees in Psychology and Criminal Justice from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. Although she was a nerd in college, Jenn moved to Colorado to be able to snowboard almost any day that she didn’t have classes and loves living close to the mountains here in Cedar.
Nowadays, you can find Jenn and her husband outside working on their house and property. They have hopes of setting up their aquaponic gardening system this next spring and look forward to planting more fruit trees. When she isn’t outside working in the yard, you can find Jenn playing with her two cats and two dogs, or being the world’s best chicken mama to her flock. Jenn also likes mountain biking and of course snowboarding along with hiking and exploring outside while collecting “cool rocks”.
