Jennifer (Jenn) Dean has been on The Center team for just over two years now. She started on the front line on our Patient Services team, but recently moved departments and now works as an Intake Specialist on our Health Information team. Jenn grew up in The Dalles, but has lived in Central Oregon for the past 30 years.

As an Intake Specialist, Jenn spends her workdays building and maintaining medical profiles for patients of The Center. This means updating things like medical history, medications, and other personal information. She says her coworkers and the amazing team at The Center are what she enjoys the most about coming to work every day.

In her free time, Jenn enjoys gardening, canning, and spending time with her husband and two kids. She and her husband also run a catering business on the side, which they have been doing for about 3 years now. It all started when their local church asked her husband to cook pulled pork for an event, and business has only grown from there! Now Jenn and her husband regularly cater weddings, fundraisers, and other events. Their largest event was for 450 people!
