Jennifer McGarvin

Jennifer McGarvin - Kaden Apparel Ambassador

I am a 41-year-old (soon to be 42) mom of two from the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, who teaches in Career and Technical Education at our local high school.  Prior to teaching, I worked in law enforcement and social work. Working in various helping professions while starting my family has played a pivotal role in appreciation for wellness in my own life. Taking time for self-care is something I’ve come to value and prioritize, and that's what led me to mountain biking! I love spending time outside with my family, especially during the summer when we are on break from school. Kingdom Trails in East Burke, Vermont is our go-to trail network.
