Despite the RPCV/W’s major events being cancelled due to COVID-19 in 2020, Jenna kept busy with adjusting the RPCV/W event strategy to a virtual format, writing about RPCV/W businesses in the COVID Community Support blog, and working with RPCVs across the country on the National RPCV Racial Justice Initiative.
Her day job is event planning at a global health organization. Prior to moving to DC from the San Francisco Bay Area, she traveled extensively, lived in Paris, France, and Punakaiki, New Zealand, and attended, volunteered at, and planned events around the world. When she isn't planning events or on zoom calls, she can be found wandering the streets or hiking trails, writing music and performing with her band Pine Apple: https://linktr.ee/thebandpineapple, or driving however far it takes to get to the closest oceanic coast with her dog.
