  • After graduating from Cornell University with a degree in Human Development and Family Studies, Jenny spent 7 years working as an assistant buyer in the retail industry. She then went on to get her Masters in Elementary Education from the University of Massachusetts Boston. She spent 8 years teaching in Ridgefield Public Schools in Connecticut.

    Jenny took time off to raise her two children – a son who struggles with his mental health and has Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and a daughter who has Bipolar Disorder.

  • After viewing Randi’s film, No Letting Go, Jenny knew she needed to get involved with The Youth Mental Health Project. She became a volunteer Facilitator of The Parent Support Network of Brookfield, CT in 2018. She is excited to join The Youth Mental Health Project team as Program Coordinator.

    Jenny lives in Connecticut with her husband, two children (when they are home from college,) and two dogs. She enjoys skiing, hiking, knitting and bridge.
