Periodically we feature a newer member of the Rotary Club of Edina on our website and in our newsletter. The Rotary Club of Edina welcomed Jen Tregarthen as a member in October 2016. But Jen had been a member of a Rotary club in Oklahoma before moving to Minnesota. Jen's sponsor to the club was Greg Yoch.

Name: Jen Tregarthen
Classification: Insurance Brokerage
What was your first job? Waitress at a local restaurant

Who was your first role model and why? SSG Francis, my supervisor in the 4th Forward Support Battalion. He managed to be approachable, encouraging, thoughtful, protective and fierce, even when he was reprimanding or coaching a soldier. He exuded the kind of confidence that comes when your moral compass is strong and true.
Why did you want to join Rotary? To help make my community a better place, to build up my peers and to help inspire the next generation of leaders to stay local, achieve their goals and have the confidence to be lead.

What do you like best about being part of the Rotary Club of Edina? I look forward to continuing to help younger generations capitalize on their leadership and entrepreneurial strengths. 
What one piece of advice do you offer other business leaders? Step outside of your comfort zones, be vulnerable and ask questions. Never stop learning!
We are lucky to have you as a member, Jen!
