Learning Development Director
Jen Wright has worked and volunteered for numerous Army organizations with distinction. After receiving a B.S. in Education from Armstrong University, Jen found her path to training and developing co-workers and peers in a multitude of training development programs and positions; professionally and as a volunteer. Her internal drive to understand leadership and be a great leader lead her to pursue a M.A. in Management and Leadership from Webster University. Finding her niche in Army Family Team Building, Jen has taught and written curriculum for the three levels of program: Army basics, personal growth, and leadership development, as well as teaching at the Department of the Army level as a CORE trainer specializing in connecting curriculum objectives to unique and powerful activities. In her most recent position, Jen worked in Operations for The Center for the Army Profession and Ethic planning SEC Army and 4-star level symposiums to help advocate the Army’s professional standards.
Growing up in an Army Airborne, Ranger, and Special Forces family, and raising three wonderfully independent amazing children during 3.5 years of deployments, Jen’s can-do attitude helped her thrive in and continue to be an active member of the Army way of life. Largely part to her time serving on boards in a variety of positions and working with AFTB, she has earned two Volunteer of the Year Awards (USAG Benelux and Ft Drum) and being awarded The Outstanding Civilian Service Medal (2012 and 2015) as well as the President’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Volunteerism signed by President Barack Obama.
Enjoying “retired” Army life with her husband Web, USMA NCAA Division 1 Rifle Coach, Jen enjoys working on improving her graphic design skills, training for triathlons, and spending time with her family and friends!
