About the Podcast

Holding Down the Fort Podcast
Military families are far from the average American family.

While on active duty, families learn resilience, resourcefulness, time management, organizational skills, flexibility, delayed gratification and, of course, how to establish a new normal after every PCS.

Our show is dedicated to making the lives of the active duty military spouses easier by curating knowledge, resources and relevant stories so you can continue to make confident and informed decisions for your family.

Jen Amos

Jen Amos found podcasting in summer 2019 as a way to work through bouts of loneliness and mild depression. She had recently moved from San Diego, CA (her home of 20+ years) to now Virginia Beach, VA with her husband (Scott R. Tucker) and dog (Stuggi).

Jen is known for her active listening skills, candidness, and ability to uncover powerful stories and life lessons while interviewing her guests live. Her favorite topics to cover on her shows involve military families, entrepreneurship, the POC experience, and mental health.

Prior to podcasting and moving to the east coast, Jen received her Bachelor’s in Journalism emphasis Public Relations at San Diego State University and was fired from her fourth consecutive job in her young adult years. For nearly a decade since, Jen has grown a successful career in sales and in entrepreneurship. From 2013-2018, she founded and ran an online marketing agency where she had a chance to personally work with 100+ brands as small as solopreneurs to mid-sized businesses.

Jen’s been featured on multiple media outlets such as FedEx Office, The Living East, The ASIAN Reader, The Star News, The San Diego Union Tribune, NBC 7 San Diego, and SD Voyager. In May 2014, she was the youngest keynote speaker for the San Diego State University Filipino Graduation Ceremony. In 2018, her new business US VetWealth with her husband, Scott R. Tucker, was named 2018 Best Entrepreneur Start Up Company Awardee by the San Diego Business Journal & The Rosie Network.

Despite the multiple media outlets, events and organizations Jen has been fortunate to be a guest speaker throughout the years, her favorite medium of speaking has been through podcasting.
