Jen Harris grew up in Eugene, and lives with her husband and two daughters. She received her BS in General Science from the University of Oregon. She has been an avid fan of dance for as long as she can remember, and although not formally trained she loves to dance. Some of her earliest memories as a child are going to the Nutcracker at the Hult Center with her mom every year. Her youngest daughter started dancing at OBA in September 2011. She joined the OBA office staff in November 2014, and also works at Irving Elementary School as an Educational Assistant. She has been so thankful to have an opportunity to learn more about the dance world, and be a part of the OBA family. When not working she enjoys spending time with her family hiking, playing at the beach, reading a good book, baking, or working on her own dance moves.
