Hello, I am Jen Martinson. I have lived in Cambridge for 13 years with my husband Phil. I have been familiar with the CAP program since its beginning as my sister was the director of the Youth Center and Senior programs. I needed something new in my life so when I was offered the opportunity to work with CAP, I jumped in! I currently help out with the First Friends program and am an assistant teacher with CAP Care. I love getting to know the kids and learn new things right along with them. It is also fun to be in the school to see my niece and nephew as they grow.
