Big Sky Kids Director
Jen comes to Eagle Mount all the way from Texas. After growing up in Dallas, she attended the University of Arkansas -- Fayetteville where she received her bachelor’s degree in social work. After graduating in 2009, she went on to pursue her MSW from the University of Kansas -- Lawrence where she studied hospice social work with a concentration in clinical grief counseling.
Unable to resist the beautiful mountains and the west in general, Jen and her husband moved to Bozeman in the summer of 2010. Prior to her position with the Big Sky Kids, she served as Co-Director at a preschool for children with special needs, and it was there that she became familiar with Eagle Mount and its wonderful mission.
In her free time Jen enjoys spending time with her family and friends and taking part in everything Montana has to offer, including hiking, camping, skiing, and taking her dog Stella on various adventures.
Pat came to work at Eagle Mount in 1991, after receiving her Master’s Degree from MSU. Pat started our year-round aquatics program in area motels. She was assured that the motel arrangements were temporary and Eagle Mount would build a state of the art therapy pool. It only took 17 years.
Pat was born in Montana but raised primarily in Iowa, where her family still lives. She always wanted to live in Montana where her beloved grandparents were natives, and now her heart and body both live in Bozeman. Never having had children, Pat spoils her nieces and nephews, and also spreads her energy and love keeping all our Eagle Mount swimmers happy, safe and challenged.
