Like the Northern Flicker bird, Jen flies to the beat of her own drum...

and wants to share her passion for all things beautiful.  She is known for her one of a kind style from makeup and wardrobe to entertaining and home décor. She can add just the right amount of flair to style any outfit, living space or entertainment event with one effortlessly thought out accessory. This lifestyle market allows Jen to combine her artistic instinct and her love of design and fashion, cultivating a creative spark and unique alternative to traditional retail shopping. Jen has been involved in numerous charity events and fundraisers, and Northern Flicker is just one more way for her to give back to her community.

After following her musical dream all the way from Canada, Jen and her husband, Rob, have landed in Auburn, Alabama, and their family has since grown by one son, one daughter, and a pomchi, fittingly named Gucci. Jen has learned it can be difficult for people to have the courage to showcase their individual style in this small Southern town, but it only takes a little bit of motivation to encourage them to step outside the box and find their own unique flavor. Sometimes people just need a little nudge in the right direction, and Jen hopes to do just that with Northern Flicker.

Jen has a way of finding the silver lining...

and seeing the potential in things in a way that may be overlooked by others, just like she did when she discovered an abandoned Victorian home in historic Opelika, Alabama.  She and Rob transformed the home into a state of the art creative space and recording studio, an ideal entertainment venue with a gourmet kitchen, which has been dubbed by local columnists as a revolving door for artists that “oozes charm.”

Jen is certainly no stranger to the entertainment industry...

as evidenced in her success with nationally acclaimed band Martha's Trouble and is eager to spread her love of entertaining with monthly wine nights and gatherings to showcase her most recent finds, both old and new. She hopes these events can encourage other women to find and treasure their own individuality in fashion, beauty, family and the home, embrace what makes them different, and learn to fly their own path...just like the Northern Flicker.
