Hi, I'm Jen! The owner, founder and sole proprietor of Urban Sprouts!
I have always loved plants. Growing up, my mom had a vibrant vegetable garden every summer and she always made sure there was room for me to have a place to grow some things too. As a young adult I tried to get as many opportunities in small business and I could, even when that meant working multiple jobs and going to school. I worked as a site supervisor for a house painting and landscaping company, an event coordinator for the American Farmland Trust, as the assistant manager at a gift shop, owned my own side business making and selling paper lanterns, and was the Operations Manager at a wholesale garden supply company.
I attended the University of Washington and got my BA in Environmental Science, with a focus on urban farming, sustainable resource use, and human health (although I started as a Biology major with the intent of becoming an Occupational Therapist). A couple years after college I found myself working in an office and quickly realized that wasn't the path for me. I wanted to run my own business! I started working on a business plan in my free time and after a few months of research, writing, planning, and scavenging for resources I was launching my fundraising campaign for start-up capital! After a lot of work the campaign was a success and a few months later at the age of 24 I opened up for business as Powder Haus in Ballard!
I am passionate about doing things for yourself and doing everything you can to increase the quality of your life and those of the people around you! I love to cook, hike, swim, craft, run my business, spend quality time with friends and family and of course build relationships with my wonderful customers!
If you ever need anything, have any questions or want to have a chat let me know! I'm always happy to connect.
Thank you for your support and I hope you join me on this journey.
