Jen joined the Ulysses Club on 23 August 2000 and aligned herself with the Canberra Branch and has remained active with that branch through to the present time.
Jen has never been one to not be involved and soon was elected to the Canberra Branch Committee and served on the Branch Committee in the following positions:
2003 - 2006 - Branch Treasurer
2006 - 2009 - Branch President
2009 - 2010 - Branch Committee
The Canberra Branch was awarded the 2005 Ulysses Club AGM Event which was the second largest attended event held by the club with 5,000 members and guests in attendance. Jen was the Event Treasurer for this event which set many precedence's for the future Club's AGM Events, one of which was the compilation of an Event Manual authored by Graham Rule which lent on his experiences as AGM Coordinator at Canberra and the roles carried out by the many Committee members at that event.
At the 2009 AGM in Penrith Jen was nominated and elected as an ordinary committee member from 2009 to 2011. She then served as NatCom Secretary from 2011 to 2013, Vice President from 2013 to 2017, and then President from 2017 to 2021 when she stepped down due to the constitutional requirements of the Club. Jen's service to the club on the highest body in the club has spanned 12 years and has helped guide the Club through many difficult and challenging times.

From 2003 to the present Jen has been actively involved in either a leadership or management role within the Ulysses Club and would most likely be a record of distinctive service that has not been achieved before and has set the bar for future members to aspire to.
Another of Jen's passions has been motorcycle safety and road safety in general. In 2009 Jen was appointed to the Ulysses Club Road Safety Committee as the ACT representative and still holds that position.
