Leading Artio has allowed Jenn to flex the culmination of her professional and personal experiences. A move back to Central Oklahoma in the midst of a pandemic and rising racial tensions spurred Jenn to tap into her roots and existing connections and utilize her skills to improve the place she was raised. 

“We each have our own flavors,” Jenn says when describing the Artio team. Artio works with businesses, communities and individuals to promote effective communication, transform conflict, and improve overall wellness.

Diplomacy Meets Day-to-Day

With companies, large and small, Artio uses everyday diplomacy to create and sustain workplace relationships among those of various backgrounds, empowering them to transcend barriers and divides. In communities, art-based classes and workshops promote conflict resolution and peacebuilding in neutral spaces. Their Development Den membership based e-learning community and Osa Peace Project are for those who wish to join alongside like-minded learners in pursuit of peace. Artio also works with individuals guiding them to uncover tools for a holistically happy and peaceful lifestyle. Jenn says, “Grass roots peace transforms communities from the bottom up.”
