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 curating knowledge, resources and relevant stories for military spouses (by military spouses and military family advocates) so they can continue to make confident and informed decisions for themselves and their families. Because let's face it... we know who's REALLY "Holding Down the Fort."

Jen is an advocate for promoting personal narratives. She 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 Filipino American woman 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 established a career in sales and in entrepreneurship with experience in the legal industry, online marketing, and financial services.

Her show, The Filipino American Woman (TFAW) Project, has recently been recognized as "Amplifying Asian Women Voices" on Spotify during AAPI Heritage Month 2020. In 2018, her and her husband’s business, US VetWealth, 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.
