Membership: Jen Dials
My name is Jen Dials and I’m your Pikes Peak IFMA Membership Chair! I am a JLL employee and work for T. Rowe Price as their Facility Coordinator. Any questions you may have about IFMA Membership, or know who would be interested in joining, I am here to help. If I don’t know the answer, I will find it for you!

I’m married with 3 boys and they are all in the “I know everything” teenager stage! We love to go camping and take our dirt bikes on the trails and wreak havoc. We love football and I enjoy watching my boys play. As for a professional football fan, I love the Miami Dolphins. This actually makes me a great person, since I’m able to stick with a team that has a winning streak (insert wink face here)! We also love to go on vacations together to new places at least once a year, which has become our new tradition. I spend a lot of my free time with my family and friends.
