Jen Heringhausen graduated with honors from Michigan State University in 2007 with a bachelor's degree in dietetics and health promotion. Following graduation, Jen completed a dietetic internship program at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, and successfully passed the national dietetics registration exam. Jen began her dietetics practice as a WIC (Women, Infants and Children) dietitian in Chicago, Illinois, and in December, 2010, Jen pursued her lifelong dream of becoming a chef by studying culinary arts at Kendall College in downtown Chicago.

After graduation from Kendall in 2012, Jen worked as the head chef of a vegetarian catering company, where she developed hundreds of healthy recipes based on seasonal fruits and vegetables. Jen is a people person, and joining the Hy Vee family will provide Jen the opportunity to share her dietetic and culinary expertise with numerous customers and clients. Jen enjoys staying active, gardening, cooking for friends and family, and teaching her dog, Colby Jack, new tricks.
