After graduating from Dickinson College in 2010, Jenna served for a year as a Public Allies, AmeriCorps member, working with Healthy Foods for Healthy Kids, a farm-to-school non-profit in Delaware. The experience brought together Jenna's interests in healthy foods, sustainability, and development, and inspired her to pursue further knowledge in the field from many different perspectives: researcher (World Watch Institute); restaurant service (Founding Farmers); international aid programs (USAID); farmer (Solstice Farm); and most recently, writer (edible South Shore). Jenna is now excited to be bringing together these experiences at CDAE, where she is focusing on sustainable food systems.
