About The Owners
Meet Jenny and Matt Thompson
Jenny Thompson, Owner
Jenny grew up all over the United States & currently resides in Des Moines, Iowa with her husband & daughter. She graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education & she is currently finishing her Master’s Degree in Special Education. Jenny has worked in Special Education for over 20 years within public schools located in Michigan, Tennessee, Ohio, Arizona & Iowa. She was inspired by what EFK has to offer because her daughter is a builder… an inventor… and a creator. As a public school teacher, Jenny has seen the first-hand need for students to have a safe & fun environment to dive into STEM.
