Growing up in the Midwest, I had a dream…that I would move away and sail the seven seas with Jacques Cousteau and learn about marine mammals. After I received my Bachelor of Science in Biology at University of WI-Whitewater, I moved to Minnesota, Mississippi and Texas, all to work at marine mammal facilities. My dream since 7th grade actually came true. For 12+ years, I worked at Sea World-San Antonio, working, training and swimming with Beluga Whales, dolphins, sea lions, walruses, otters and finally Shamu.
I was blessed to have two passions in my. The time working at Sea World, I became a 4x Ironman Triathlete, USA World Championship Duathlete and USA Triathlon Level I Coach. Since my Bachelor degree was animal behavior based, I really wanted to go back to school and get my Masters degree in Kinesiology. I wondered…how I will do that when I am working at Sea World full time.
lululemon athletica came into my life and some amazing people at lululemon BELIEVED in me and offered me a job to become an educator and soon a Key Leader. I left my dream job of 14 years but I knew it was the right thing for me to do. I knew that lululemon would support me as an educator, while I went back to get my degree.
I receive my Masters of Science in Kinesiology at UTSA, along with receiving my CrossFit Level I, CrossFit Endurance certification and Pose Method Running Certificate. I am triathlon coach, a strength and conditioning coach for Endurance Athletes. After leaving lululemon as a key leader, I put together my own company, www.jenrulon.com and started EFit, a strength and conditioning program designed for endurance athletes.
I feel honored to be able to inspire, educate, motivate and elevate the world with my knowledge, passion and positive attitude through lululemon athletica as an Ambassador.
I wouldn’t have been able to do this without my wonderful husband, Chris, who believed in me from the first time we meet. Thanks for lululemon BELIEVING in me as an educator and now as an Ambassador!
