During a very special month-long trip to India in 2011, where she studied Vedic meditation and hatha yoga, Jenna came to understand a deeper level of attention and presence – and the positive ripple effects yielded when attention, presence and service are combined. This service oriented understanding is at the heart of Jenna’s personal value set. Born in sunny Orange, CA, Jenna is the 4th of 5 children. She’s always valued her southern California upbringing, although New York City has been her home more than half of her life.
Carrying industry experience ranging from Entertainment, to Advertising Technology, to Venture Capital, Jenna makes it a priority to engage her relationships, be it professional or personal, with authenticity, warmth and humor. Leading with a credo of learning and growing at every stage of the game, Jenna is a proud CUNY student – majoring in Business, a mentor volunteer at The Lower Eastside Girls Club, and a member of NSLS (National Society of Leadership and Success).
Outside of work, when she isn’t in ‘studying-mode’, Jenna loves spending time with her nearest and dearest dining out, catching the latest exhibits at MoMA or The Met, diving into any of Brene Brown’s books for a re-read (Jenna has read all of her works, attended a lecture of Ms Brown’s in person and is a huge fan), traveling of course, but also exploring New York City like a tourist… because even after so many years living here she still loves discovering new hidden gems throughout the city.
