My name is Jen Hutchins and I am delighted to be the newest
member of the Independence, Inc. team as Program Director.
I was born and raised in Minot but was gone for 17 years
while my husband completed his career in the US Air Force. While at various duty stations, I was
fortunate enough to work with people with Intellectual and Mental Health
disabilities in Hawaii, Alabama, Virginia and Maryland.
I have an amazing husband, Tim and 2 beautiful daughters.
Alannah is a junior at Minot State University and is majoring in Accounting.
Heather is a senior at Magic City Campus and will study Nursing at Minot State
in the fall of 2014.
In my spare time I enjoy Vikings football, reading, fishing,
and training and showing my dogs.
I look forward to empowering people with disabilities and
helping to remove barriers that hinder choice and independent living.
