farm, playing with the barn cats, horses or their many pet birds. Outside of work,
Danielle loves to spend her time with her dog, Graci, who is a five-year old Pitbull mix
rescue. She is also an avid craft beer fan and can be spotted around town at one of the

She has worked in residential settings, private practice, juvenile corrections, school systems, and with the court. Jen has a passion for working with disadvantaged populations including animals!

Jen has two dogs, two cats, and an active son. She is finally ready to put roots down in Colorado once again and looks forward to serving Bounce in the Fort Collins community.
Laura Dufresne-Morton, Board Member
Laura was born and raised in Southern Arizona where she studied Gender Theory and Marketing at the University of Arizona. She started her career as an AmeriCorps member working with underserved youth. Her passion for youth services led her to 6 years working for Girl Scouts in both Arizona and Colorado. In 2015, she left Girl Scouts to follow a pipe dream of owning a food truck with her husband, and they opened Mac’n that same year. They have since added a second food truck, Baked, that has become wildly popular. She is the proud mom of 2 incredibly spoiled rescue pups and a fuzzy kitty. She is excited to utilize her marketing and fundraising skills to help Bounce thrive.
