Jeni is a Catering Sales Representative with Panera Bread by day, and a loving wife and mother to her 6 month old German Shepherd she calls her “monsterpuppy” by night. She is also very creative with a Fine Arts Degree from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan, and paints, screen prints, sings, plays guitar and writes her own songs. Only two years after watching her father give in to his Glioblastoma, she learned that she too, had the exact same tumor, only 1 month before her 30th birthday. Her husband, Eric, took 3 months off of work to be by her side every step of the way until she was given the okay to be left alone again. After a major surgery, several months of radiation, and over a year worth of chemotherapy, she was given the okay to go back to work in June of 2015. With the love and support of Jeni’s husband, family and friends, she has remained positive through everything. This is the 3rd year she will be walking in the Head for the Cure 5k, and hopes to become even more involved in fundraising for brain tumor research.
