Meet Jennifer

Jennifer Bouse

Senior Sales Director


22 years ago I was an elementary school teacher and coaching volleyball and cheerleading in the high school. My husband and I decided we were ready to start a family and I became pregnant with Makenzie (now 21). Both of us agreed that I would quit teaching to stay at home with our children and so I finished out the year of teaching 4th grade in the Willlard School district. During my last year of teaching, NSD Asenath Brock, now SNSD Emeritus, shared the Mary Kay opportunity with me. I found that I could make some extra money and still be at home with Makenzie. I liked the idea of having some “girl time” and not having to ask Kirk for “fun money”. So I started Mary Kay to only make an extra $50 a week and have some personal time, working only about 5 hours a week. I worked my business consistently, holding 2 skin care classes each week, making more than $50 a week and loving it! It was just what the Dr. ordered. I saw my self-esteem rise, my relationship with God was getting stronger and I had some really great girlfriends who cared about me . . . not to mention the extra money was nice too! Well, 2 years later, working only 5-10 hours each week, I picked up my first earned car in Mary Kay, the red Grand Am. My second daughter Madison (now 19) was born just 2 weeks earlier. Wow! How exciting! Kirk was a little skeptical and wanted to know “what the catch was”…
