Pennsylvania District of Kiwanis International

Immediate-Past Governor Jen Vare

“Service to the community has always been important in my life. In High School, I began volunteering weekly in the children’s area of Levittown’s Homeless Shelter. I knew then that no matter where I would go or what I would do Service and Children would need to be my focus. Since joining the Kiwanis Family I have been fortunate to use my passion and energy as a member and leader to reach personal and professional goals, especially in serving the children.”

My professional background is Education, serving as a Kindergarten Teacher from September 2000- June 2013, when the school closed their doors for the final time. I am currently employed as a Manager of a local restaurant and a Curves fitness and weight loss coach, a job that I have quickly come to love.

I have spent the last ten years of my life with Paul Hollinger. While not a Kiwanis member he has attended numerous conventions, midwinter conferences, local activities and supports all of my Kiwanis decisions.
