Jenn

Jennifer, Director of First Impressions / Administrative Assistant

In West Philadelphia, born and raised… no, wait, that’s not right. The South Shore of Nova Scotia is actually where she spent most of her days growing up. Jennifer has been posing as a city girl for the last 20 years.

Outside of Peak, she enjoys spending her free time reading, baking, and spending time with family and friends. She enjoys travelling, and while Cuba & other far away places are typically high on the list of places to be, her favourite place to go right now is Antigonish to see her son at StFX.

Jen’s favourite thing about working at Peak is interacting with all the fantastic team members and patients. Of course, nothing beats providing a little comedy relief with the Statler to her Waldorf, Sondra.

Kelly spends her days off trying out new recipes on her husband, singing/playing guitar, meeting up with friends or family for the opportunity to golf, or just get caught up over a cup of tea. Kelly believes she is no longer the only girl in a family of three brothers, as she has adopted her awesome, highly skilled Peak Energy co-workers as her extended family.
