Jen has been working for O’Brien Mitsubishi for about four years as a biller and she is very essential to the functioning of the business. We enjoy her fun personality around the office! “I like to take on new challenges and there is a lot of work to be done, but every day is different. I like numbers and contracts and forms, but I also enjoy seeing customers happy with their investment, so it’s neat to see both sides of the business,” Jen said. Originally from Detroit, Jen moved to Bloomington-Normal several years ago for graduate school at Illinois State University where she studied financial education and counseling. In her free time, Jen enjoys participating in Tough Mudder endurance events, which entails navigating through 10 to 13 miles of obstacle courses and more.
