DATE AND TIME
October 9, 2020 at 8:00AM
PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONIn our current environment, we could all use a little inspiration and Jen Loeb is going to deliver it as she shares her expedition to the top of Mt Everest. Enjoy the story of her journey, be amazed by the pictures and take advantage of the opportunity to ask questions of the first Iowa female to successfully make that journey.
Jen was born and raised in Jesup, Iowa. She went to Wartburg College and graduated with a degree in biology. She currently lives in Marengo and works in Cedar Rapids. Jen started mountain climbing in 2010 and since that time has climbed mountains all over the world, including Everest on May 19, 2016. She's the first woman from Iowa to climb it. She's currently on track to become one of less than 25 women in the United States to complete the “7 Summits” (which is when you climb the highest mountain on every continent)….only one peak left to climb…Vinson in Antarctica. Jen has released a book called “Shots From The Heart”. It’s 238 pages of photographs and journal excerpts from her travels both near and far. The book and select prints are available on her website Iowaclimberjen.com. She's been featured in the Cedar Rapids Gazette, the Des Moines Register, KWWL, KCRG, and NPR. When she’s not climbing or working she also does a lot of volunteer work.
Please join us up to 15 minutes early for a technology check, sign-in, and informal networking. We will get started at 8:00AM.
