Meet the Guide: Jen



If you are looking for a guide who is all in, we have found her. Jen has been a part of Branson Zipline since April of 2011. She is a fun loving, hard working tour guide, and loves chatting with her guests about everything and anything! Jen grew up in Branson, Mo and always loved going to Silver Dollar City – a must do when visiting Branson. It was only fitting that Jen work as a zipline tour guide at Branson’s best outdoor activity, Branson Zipline Canopy Tours!

When Jen was in middle school she used to love listening to 80’s music. Ever since her childhood she has been adventurous. She loves getting out there and keeps herself busy by working out and spending time with her daughter, Becca. But, she is also all about wearing Pajamas and sitting back as she enjoys her Chicago style pizza and Ben and Jerry’s “Phish Food.” I guess we can say that if you are looking for someone who has the best of both worlds you’ve found her! She has been a great member of our team and we are really excited to showcase her today!

A Few Q & A’s with Jen:

What are your responsibilities as a Tour Guide? Making sure everyone is safe and comfortable.
How do you feel about working at BZL? I enjoy it; it’s fun and keeps me moving. Interacting with new people every day is definitely a highlight. I have had people from different countries and they are so interesting to get to know.
What is the best vacation you’ve ever had? One time I went on a backpacking trip at Glacier National Park in Montana. I loved seeing the scenery, waterfalls, springs and things no one could see unless they hiked up the 20 miles. It took my breath away.
What is your favorite activity? Kayaking
Best tour you’ve ever had? At the beginning of the summer I was privileged to zip with a couple. The gentleman told us that he was planning on proposing to his girlfriend of a year and a half. Sure enough he got down on one knee and a few moments later she said,”Yes!” They then took the plunge of our Freefall Xpress! Best tour ever! Favorite season to zip & why? Spring, because it’s a comfortable season to zip. Not too hot and not too cold. Everything is blooming and green!
Best advice for a new zipliner: Be strong and hang in there because you will love it in the long run
