Jenn is: a Southern black woman, native of Little Rock, Arkansas, the proud daughter and granddaughter of educators, loyal friend and family member, folk musician, doting dog mom, travel enthusiast, former teacher, Harry Potter fan, and a glass-half-full optimist. Jenn has a deep love for the banjo, hiking, the music of Natalia Lafourcade, and for understanding how our internal emotional landscapes drive our decision making. As a graduate of Little Rock Central High School, the legacy of 1954 has touched every area of her life. She feels most at home when actively engaged in racial justice work, is passionate about coaching and developing adults, and envisions a country where everyone has equal access and opportunity to reach their full potential. Jenn’s decade of experience in education and adult development includes roles as: Assistant Principal, Dean of Instruction, Race and Equity Facilitator, High School Spanish teacher, AP Environmental Science Teacher (KIPP New Orleans), Graduate Instructional Assistant and Facilitator (Columbia University), and Professional Development Facilitator and Coach (Louisiana Resource Center for Educators). Jenn holds a BA in Spanish and Latin American Studies from Washington University in St. Louis and a MA in Educational Leadership from Columbia University.
