Jenny Harris, Sales Associate
Passionate and adventurous, Jenny has never been one to be satisfied with a pigeon hole, which would explain why she has dipped in to several fields in so few years. Working for a start-up marketing agency in Tacoma, Jenny found herself doing anything from answering phones and ad placement to writing speeches for the Mayor to planning medical conferences in Seattle. From there she took on the hospitality world in Gig Harbor where she managed a small Inn and sold and marketed Tall Ship charters. The irony of her career is that her first job in marketing was with Christian as a West Coast Entertainment Marketing intern delivering Krispy Kremes and rubbing shoulders with celebrities. With a desire to head back to her roots, she is now with the vehicle sales arm of GoMobile®. When she’s not selling to unsuspecting entrepreneurs, Jenny enjoys traveling, hiking and dreaming big. She is also involved in her church and local community.
