Packing up and relocating to Paris, France, to begin a business career immediately following college was proof that Jennifer Sallis welcomed adventure. The 1992 UW-Eau Claire French and Spanish graduate worked first in marketing for an American company in "The City of Light" until her transfer with French cosmetics giant L'Oreal in 2001 to New York, "The City that Never Sleeps." Almost 10 years later, Jennifer experienced another grand adventure when she completed a 4,200-mile bicycle trek. The trip departed from Seattle with more than 50 cyclists from around the world. They crossed over the Rocky Mountains, the Great Plains, the Midwestern states (including Wisconsin) and the Adirondacks, completing the journey as a group nine weeks later in Boston. The cross-country journey exposed Jennifer to amazing scenery, the kindness of her fellow riders and the abilities they never knew they had. Soon after, the Ralph Lauren Corp. hired Jennifer to lead change management for its global system implementation based on her experience at L'Oreal. Today she continues at Ralph Lauren and lives with her husband in Princeton, N.J. Jennifer chose adventures in business AND bicycling, and that's pretty powerful.
