In 2019, Jen Heerschap left the corporate world to become an Agent at I Book Shows, and has never looked back. Her focus is primarily booking the amazing roster of artists in MB, SK, AB & BC as well as in the Mid-West-to-West-Coast in the USA.
Although newer to the music industry, she has enjoyed becoming immersed in the world of Folk/Roots, Celtic, Trad, Americana, Country and all the genres that weave in between and beyond.
When Jen isn’t chained to her desk, she can be found spending time with her family, baking, painting, but more commonly enjoying the outdoors, probably on a paddle board, probably in Pike Bay!
