She holds her Master of Fine Arts from Parsons School of Design and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography and arts management from Cazenovia College. Jenna’s creative work is driven by documentary traditions and has been exhibited in group shows internationally.

Along with her involvement in the arts, Jenna has several years of experience in management roles where she became an empathetic team leader. She is excited to bring the collaborative aspects of her creative process and her operational expertise to The House of Heart. When Jenna isn’t working on one of her many projects, you may find her running and cycling throughout the Catskills, spending time with her rescue dog, Heart, and enjoying all of Hala’s cooking.
