Jenni grew up in Australia playing elite sports and ventured to America on an athletic scholarship to row at the University of Washington. This dual NCAA National Champion, thrives of being an athlete in life, but what’s more important to her is being a teammate. As the captain of the rowing team she never won a race by herself, but when her coaches paired her with others she was unstoppable. Jenni loves to win for her teammates and in the working world her teammates are her community that supports her daily… yes that’s you!
In her spare time Jenni can be found:
- Rolling around on the floor like she’s 3 with her toddler
- Encouraging and bragging about her husband’s cooking skills
- Connecting with her friends as much as she can through social media
- Staying up all night to play around on the latest technology
Jenni believes a healthy body makes a healthy mind and thrives off finding sneaky ways to trick herself and others around her into working out, from holding a business meeting at a gym to walking around the lake while mentoring future rockstars. She’s the ultimate fan and believes you can never scream loud enough at a sporting event or be too excited to meet a celebrity you’ve grown up watching on TV or dancing too on the radio.
Thanks for being in her world! She’d love to hear from you. You can catch her on Twitter and Facebook pretty much all the time (a big reason why Forbes labeled her the “Socially Savvy Journalist”).
