From her website bio:

What keeps you up at night? For me, it was the question, “am I doing what I love to do?” After almost 20 years in Corporate America, I decided to step back from my desk life and follow my passions.
Early in my career, I had a boss ask me if I wanted to be known for the cookies I baked or the work I did.  At the time, I told her what she wanted to hear.  Now it’s time to say what I thought years ago. Know me for my cookies!
Those of you who are staring at your ceiling at night wondering if you are in the right job, ask yourself what are you really passionate about?  If it's not your job, find out what it is...and do that!

I competed with my baked goods for over 17 years at the MN State Fair.  This move takes me to the next level where the judges don’t just give me feedback on a score sheet and award me a ribbon. The judges are now my customers.

T-Rex Cookie is differentiated by creating a high quality award winning product for my customers by using my experience as a competitive baker at the forefront of the business.  We also pride ourselves on excellent customer service.  You will always feel welcome in my shop.  If you don't, I want to know about it!

NOTE: This special joint meeting with the Rotary Club of Eagan will take place from 7:30am - 9am at the Lost Spur Golf and Event Center, 2750 Sibley Memorial Hwy, Eagan, MN 55121.
It will include a catered breakfast at no cost for all Eagan and Eagan Kick Start Rotarians.

Jennifer Jones has managed to break through the glass ceiling in Rotary, and is one of only 10 women to reach the level of RI Director.

One of Rotary International's most recognized communicators, Jennifer has presented keynote addresses and training workshops at more than 100 conferences across North America and most recently in St Petersburg - Russia, Panama City, Bangkok, Lisbon, Finland, India, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, Australia and Germany. 

Jennifer joined Rotary in 1997 when she was only 27. She owned a television production company and the general manager of a cable company invited her to attend a Rotary meeting. “I had covered Rotary as a young reporter when it was still an ‘old men’s club.’ So I wasn’t really sure what to expect.” But she went and “when I arrived I felt like I had arrived home!” She joined RC Windsor-­Roseland in Canada

In 2001 she became the club president, and loved it. Her club then had 65 members and around 60 per cent were female. In 2007-08 she became Governor.

As champions of The Rotary Foundation, both her and her husband [also a Rotarian] are members of the Arch C. Klumph Society, the Paul Harris Society and are charter members of the Bequest Society.
