Jen Bricker is a self-described gum-aholic. Our favorite kind of person! She is also a freelance aerialist, motivational speaker, and spirited TV personality based in sunny Los Angeles, CA. When Jen’s not chewing Sugar-Free Lemon-Lime Glee Gum (her preferred flavor), she can be found “working out, hanging upside down, or cooking.”
Jen’s athletic talent and positive attitude are Gleeful things indeed. She was born without legs, but didn’t let that stop her from playing volleyball, basketball, and softball as a kid. Gymnastics was her main passion, and she soon excelled at tumbling, even becoming the high school state champion of her division. Adopted as a baby, she later learned that her childhood idol— Olympic gymnast Dominique Moceanu—was, in fact, her biological sister. The story of their happy reunion has been highlighted in several inspiring documentaries, with more in the works.
Jen grew up with three older brothers and still enjoys “playing outside with the boys.” She counts camping, sitting around a bonfire, and getting dirty riding four-wheelers among her favorite activities. But she keeps it clean when eating, which is why she loves Glee Gum. She wrote us to say, “Thank you for producing such an awesome, clean, yummy product!”
To which we say, thank YOU, Jen, for being so awesome yourself!
