Jen Bennett is a fourth generation Arizonan and her love of cats goes back to her childhood, playing with the barn cats she grew up with.

Jen is in her twelfth year in IT, now a Systems Administrator for a large construction equipment rental company. Her most recent volunteerism includes several animal rescue and neighborhood rehabilitation organizations, as well as championing equality causes. She is also a frequent platelet donor. Joining the La Gattara board as Board Secretary will give her an opportunity to practice her love of organization and writing stuff down.

In her free time, Jen enjoys trail running, cycling, and stand up paddleboarding. She and her husband also spend time card making and woodworking. They long ago gave up keeping their supplies away from their three cats; Samantha, Tabitha and Arthur, all of whom they met through La Gattara.
