Jenna joined the Alliance’s team in 2017 as a Pennsylvania Program Assistant. She’s now the Communications & Web Specialist where she manages the Alliance’s website and supports a variety of communications efforts across the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

Growing up in Hummelstown, Pennsylvania, Jenna wasn’t inherently aware of her connection to the Chesapeake Bay, but she’s always felt connected to the environment. Her family went on annual camping trips to the Adirondacks every summer and explored other areas from Shenandoah National Park in Virginia to the Green Mountains in Vermont.

Jenna credits her high school AP Environmental Science class for her realization that environmental science was the career for her. She graduated from Penn State in 2017 with a B.S. in Environmental Resource Management and two minors in Geographic Information Science (GIS) and Watersheds and Water Resources. Jenna’s held internship positions at a cultural and environmental consulting company, ASC Group, Inc., and the Penn State Agriculture and Environment Center.

Today, Jenna loves spending time with her family & friends, kayaking, hiking, working out, reading, watercolor painting, and watching Penn State football and the New York Yankees.
