Jen - Owner, floor sweeper, scooter enthusiast.
Originally graduating from Otago University with a B.Com Jen found herself working for Taylormade Productions in Dunedin, best known for their association with Animation Research Limited and the America's Cup Graphics. From there was a 'stint in multi media' but that was back in the day before even CD's were available. Working in a production studio in Geneva Jen video'd the Swiss Lottery three times per week which was no where near as glamorous as it sounds but quite nerve wracking the first few times.
Returning from her OE Jen mooched about a bit, and eventually fell into Teaching, to her immense surprise. 15 years back at school completed her education, to which she had paid little real attention as a youth. The students taught her a few things and equip her well with the broad range skills required in business.
After a lengthy search Jen was delighted to become the new owner of Freedpev in 2020 and threw herself into the task of learning everything there is to know about electric scooters.
Frequently surprising a certain demographic, Jen can often be seen 'on the tools' in the workshop getting grease on her clothes and ruining multiple tubes trying to repair Xiaomi punctures, although she prefers to let the experts in the workshop do the big jobs.
Jen is a bit of a greenie at heart and her mission is to promote micro mobility in urban centres around Auckland and other New Zealand cities. As a devout city girl Jen can only see the benefits of the electric vehicle revolution in air quality and of micro-mobility in reducing congestion on the roads, making the city livable again.
“I have been a teacher and a video editor. Owning a business was a dream for years and finding Freed was a dream come true. My mission is to clear the city of cars, and I love it when a new customer can save money and reduce emissions by switching to an electric scooter. My favourite thing is when customers rave about how much they love their commute on their new scooters.”
