Jen Schaeffers is mom to two little firecrackers, Ronan (3) and Kaylee (5). She loves exploring their little community of Steveston. When they aren’t playing at the park or rumbling down the boardwalk, mom can be found at her other love – her work. As the Executive Director of the CKNW Orphans’ Fund, Jen fundraises for some of the most vulnerable children in the province, helping to support them in their variety of challenges.
