Hello friends! My name is Jen Wheeler, and I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. By day I am a homeschool mom of 4 wonderful children, ages 7-15. I love to read, knit, hike and make music. I recently finished my M. Ed. in Instructional Design and Technology for Online Teaching and spend some of my time designing language arts content for online K-12 schools, particularly schools that have a faith-based instructional programs. In our church organization, I serve with Ken Witzel on the Pittsburgh Coordinating Council as Assistant Director of Communications responsible for media.
I am excited to be joined by my husband, John and my daughter, Katie. John is a Software Engineer and works for UPMC Enterprises. He also serves as the Bishop for our local congregation, the Pittsburgh 3rd Ward.
Katie is a 9th grade student, who has been studying world religions this year, focusing on what unites us as people of faith, rather than what divides us. She plays the violin in a local community orchestra, Opus 2, and is an avid writer. She hopes to pursue a writing career after she graduates. Additionally, Katie currently serves an active member of her youth group and is on the leadership team.
We can't wait to visit with all of you and get to know you better!
