Everyone has a story. Stories are data. Data informs change. Jenna's experience as a youthworker, educator, and qualitative research scientist has led to the new adventure of independent consulting. She named her organization: Informed Change because she believes powerful change is rooted in learning from and understanding young people and their communities. Young people are the experts of their experiences.

Jenna has an awesome partner and two amazing kids who like to play cards and go on walks together. She loves reading and playing her cello. Also, she loves Prince.
