    In 1998 whilst on a snowboarding trip, Jen hit a patch of ice and damaged her spinal cord at the 6th and 7th cervical vertebrae. She was told she would be a quadriplegic for the rest of her life. In 1999 Jen became the first woman to receive electrodes to help her stand and walk. Today she is active in scuba diving, canoeing, and is a member of the U.S. disabled sailing team Sail La Vie. She is the co-founder of Neurotech Network, a non-profit organisation that helps raise awareness for neurotechnological devices.
