Jenn, a cradle Presbyterian, was born and raised in central New Jersey. Jenn first felt her call to ministry in high school, and affirmed and reaffirmed that call at Texas Christian University and Princeton Theological Seminary. Jenn has been in ordained pastoral ministry since 2001. She arrived at Second Church in 2006, after serving almost five years with a PCUSA congregation in Marietta, Georgia. Jenn’s responsibilities at Second are community partnerships/mission and pastoral care.
Jenn resides in Charles Village with her husband, JT Paulk, a CPA. Together they have three children-Ellie,14, Maggie, 12 and Andrew, 5.
