Jennie Jorgens
Event Coordinator

Jennie Jorgens is the VP of Operations for Inspired Living and the Event Coordinator for the Oregon Women’s Conference.

Jennie’s role at Inspired Living perfectly fits with her experience as a high-six figure business owner, a “get-it-done” coach, technology geek, problem-solver and one who LOVES to apply her “Teampreneur” attitude to life, business and service.

So what is a Teampreneur?  One who loves collaboration, teamwork, success for all and being surrounded by people who are living their calling, passion and purpose.

So, what inspires Jennie?  “I get truly inspired when I’m able to share and experience my core values to the benefit of myself and others.  What do I value the most: Connecting, Community, Communication, Service and Spirituality!  When all five are present, I’m living the dream baby…living the dream.”

Beth Erlendson
Marketing and PR Coordinating Council

Beth started FAB Marketing Group in 2009 as a one-woman show, working out of a home office with a dream of providing small, inspired businesses with the expertise of a senior level marketing professional without the cost of an in-house team. Fast forward to 2014, and the marketing agency is now headquartered in Portland, Oregon with a team of seven professionals catering to various client needs. With more than 20 years of marketing experience, Beth brings a rich background in strategic planning, brand identity development, advertising campaign management and digital marketing. Some of FAB’s clients include Premiere Property Group, Lasting Connections, Mountain Park Home Owner’s Association, city of Lake Oswego, Muscles in Motion, GruntWorks, VX Vineyard, Innovative Nightscapes and Golf Today Magazine Northwest.

Having collaborated with Inspired Living on projects in the past, when Keri Murphy asked Beth to join the team, the answer was a quick and resounding “Yes!” She knew this was an event that would effect women’s lives in a profound way and she wanted to be a part of that.

In her spare time, Beth practices humility through the game of golf, enjoys learning about wine and is an active competitor on the chainsaw juggling circuit. (One of those may not be true.)
