A graduate of Miramonte High School, she graduated from UC Davis with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Design and a minor in English. Jenny entered the single subject tract at Cal Poly to earn her teaching credential, completing it at Chapman University.

Jenny spent summers coaching swimming in Lafayette, and continued coaching with both USS clubs and adult masters' teams. This was the beginning of her passion for working with teens. She is a firm believer that consistent involvement in sports and activities during this busy period of the teen years prepares students for the workload demands in academics and life beyond.

Jenny has taught fine art for elementary and high school in Walnut Creek. She has also taught home economics for middle and high school in both Walnut Creek and San Jose. She created tutoring program for middle school students in math, and applies hands-on and visual learning as much as possible.

Currently, she works in San Francisco for a small boutique accounting firm during the week and continues her passion for working with students on the weekend. She has been with SOS4Students since 2007 coaching and teaching workshops as well as mentoring new coaches.

In her free time she enjoys cooking, skiing, exercising and spending time with her husband and three children.
