052: Jen Hatzung on Rethinking Pearls, Pantyhose and Power Suits
Jen has a BA in Political Science and has a background in social media, brand marketing, working with military families and non-profit communications. Jen is the co-founder of She Percolates. She and her co-host, Danielle, believe success is an ever evolving concept – it is different for everyone – and each iteration is valid and worth celebrating. Their mission is to introduce their audience to interesting and inspiring women who live all different versions of success. They strive to encourage women to live out their own version of success.
