Profile

Jenny attended Quinnipiac University where she received a bachelor's degree in sociology and also found her passion for higher education. Jenny was planning on becoming an elementary school teacher, but all of that changed with each additional co-curricular experience and advice from mentors at Quinnipiac. During her four years at Quinnipiac, Jenny had the pleasure of being an orientation leader, resident assistant, community advisor and career services intern, and through those opportunities realized working with students and connecting with peers is what brought her joy and happiness. With this new realization, Jenny attended the University of Rhode Island and received a master's degree in college student personnel. Working in Orientation at Brandeis University has been a dream come true. Jenny loves meeting new students and works hard to make sure that they have a memorable first week at Brandeis.

Jenny grew up in Westwood, MA and now lives there with her husband, Dave, and kids, Jake and Lexi. She loves to hang out with family and friends and enjoys watching Netflix and reality tv shows.
