Jenna launches her career in our front office. After what she accomplished in college, we can’t wait to see what she does.
Jenna grew up in the Pacific Northwest in Snoqualmie, just east of Seattle, and relocated to Portland for college.
Just three years later, at the age of 20, she graduated from the University of Portland in May 2022. Not only did she secure a bachelor’s degree in communication in those three years, but she also minored in gender studies. Her qualitative research capstone delved into how students at the predominantly white school defined diversity.
Upon graduating, she took a well-deserved celebratory road trip to Chicago and back. She looks forward to traveling more in the future.
Before joining FP Transitions, Jenna built her professional competence during her college years with service-focused roles and through community engagement work at the Portland Fruit Tree Project. Now, she leverages those skills as she supports our operations department in her role as Front Office Coordinator.
Jenna was drawn to our team by the people she interviewed with for the role. She sees the FP Transitions team as a smaller, close-knit, client-centered company.
As part of our team, Jenna hopes to grow both professionally — particularly in administrative experience — and personally.
When she’s not at the office, you can usually find Jenna outdoors. She loves hiking along the coast near Manzanita, swimming, camping, and skiing. When she’s indoors, Jenna’s often cooking. She says she’s a “mostly vegan” foodie, with some little allowances after nearly seven years of vegan eating. And someday soon, she hopes to bring a cat into her home.
