Jen Schneberger, Graphic Designer

A native Californian, Jen obtained a degree in marketing from CSU, Sacramento but worked in finance right out of college. After meeting her future husband, she moved to the east coast, and after an international move, then a return to California where she got married and had her first child, she started designing ads for a neighbor’s coupon book business that enabled her to work from home with her new baby. To further her skills, Jen earned a certificate in graphic design and worked as a marketing assistant for a small safety company. By the time she moved back to the east coast, she was doing graphic design on a freelance basis. In 2010, Jen sought freelance work from Blue Dog and instead found a job there. Flexibility, autonomy and a family atmosphere have kept her at Blue Dog ever since. Jen resides in Downingtown with her husband and two daughters. jen@getbluedog.com
