Lead Career Consultant
College of Engineering and the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences

Jenna joined the Career Center team in June 2017 and is excited to serve students in the College of Engineering and Franklin College of Arts & Sciences (Life/Physical Science) at the University of Georgia. She first became a Bulldog at Mississippi State University (MSU) where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Educational Psychology. While she continued her Master of Science in Counselor Education-Student Affairs, she worked as a Graduate Assistant and Instructor with the MSU Career Center. Her position allowed her to counsel students both in and outside of the classroom regarding career goals and interests.

Jenna spent much of her undergraduate college career testing the waters in a variety of fields like health care, fine arts, and communication. Her own experiences drive her to encourage students to discover their own, personalized career path through career and major exploration and industry research. She is passionate about equipping students to hone their skills to prepare them for finding fulfilling careers. She also enjoys working with students through phases of transition.
