Jen Streby

Hi! My name is Jen, and I grew up loving the outdoors, traveling to our family cabin every summer in Michigan where I got to spend time in lakes, rivers, and the woods. I grew apart from that as I traveled throughout the U.S. searching for what I call home until I moved to Utah in 2008 and became an avid backpacker and river rafter. From then on, it’s been a passion I seek out when the weather is a bit warmer here in the PNW.

I now call Washington home and have been here for 6 years. I started working for evo 2 days after my move up from Portland and have loved every minute of it. I’ve been a buyer for a couple of categories and then was tasked with bringing on our camp category several years ago. It’s been a wild ride and I’m stoked to be able to share my love for the outdoors with all our evo family.
