Jen Corey (born July 21, 1987) is an American beauty pageant titleholder, event planner, and community activist.

Background[edit]

Corey is a 2009 graduate of American University with a degree in vocal performance. In 2009 she was crowned Miss District of Columbia and finished in the Top 10 at Miss America 2010. During her year of service, Corey served as the local ambassador for the Children's Miracle Network. She worked with Goodwill of Greater Washington with her platform called "Let's Talk Trash", which promoted recycling and reusing.[1][2][3] In 2010 Corey was named one of MSNBC's BLTWY Top 40 Under 40 Who Changed DC in 2010.[4]

Corey started as an intern at the J Street Group in 2010 and rejoined the J Street Group as a Project Manager in 2012. She has planned events and programs for the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network and the Washington National Opera. In 2010 Corey started her own makeup consulting business, Capital Charm. She serves on two local non-profits boards: (1) the Miss District of Columbia Scholarship Program on which she serves as the producer for the pageant each year, in addition to helping prepare the winner for the Miss America competition; and (2) Collective Action For Safe Spaces (formerly known as HollaBack DC!), which aims to stop street harassment and public sexual harassment of women and members of the LGBTQ community.[5]
