Jensen ForbisTechnical Recruiter

Jensen attended CSU for Art but felt it wasn’t the right path. She started working in sales and quickly realized I have a natural talent. After only a few months, she was promoted to management. She decided to grow her career outside of retail and sought out recruiting. She was quickly promoted into a Senior Recruiter running a full desk. She was born and raised in Colorado! Fun fact: She started working with dogs and dog rescue for a few years which I loved. She has four animals and is obsessed! 2 littermate kitties and 2 little dogs. I try and spend as much time loving on them and getting them out and about in my free time. I’m passionate about animal rescue volunteers her time at MaxFund! In addition to that, She loves pop culture and music (mostly pop) and loves going to concerts! Her favorite quote is “Don’t let fear stop you from doing the thing you love.” -Buster Moon
