Jen is a graduate of Emerson College in Boston, MA with a B.A. in Visual Media Arts and a minor in Broadcast Journalism. Although she initially went to Emerson to study broadcast TV and become the next Oprah, her interest in emerging technologies became her main study and ultimately her passion.
Jen moved to Los Angeles in 2004 where she began working for Vantage Media as an email marketing specialist. Through targeted marketing, Jen expanded Vantage’s lead generation capabilities by driving students to degree-specific portals based on progressive profiling, user activities, and demographic data.

In 2013, Jen Stretch moved from Los Angeles, CA to Charlotte, NC where she founded HomeStretch Marketing, LLC. As a competitive cyclist, Jen is no stranger to the homestretch: the final phase of the race where the finish line is visible, yet doesn’t feel completely attainable. Jen applies the same competitive spirit that she has on the bike to push businesses out of their comfort zone and beyond their perceived finish line.
