Jen Kyllonen

Founder

Jen has two incredible children, Sadie and Rudy, and is currently an Oxford resident.  She works at a local family owned business in Oxford and has been a  “Jen of all trades” for them since 2000.  She also fills a per diem spot at CMMC in the Emergency Department as a registration clerk.   She is an original cofounder of the Pink Feather Foundation in 2011, and is passionate about people and her local community.  During the holiday months you can find her and her children counting bottles to raise money for the local Christmas for kids program and delivering centerpieces to local seniors for the holidays.  She believes our children should be encouraged to come to the need of others and understand that it is ok to reach out for help if it is needed.
