Jenna is a Master of Environmental Management student at the Yale School of the Environment, specializing in People, Equity, and Environment. Her research and coursework focuses on the role power, equity, justice, social science, and values play in environmental problem solving, higher education leadership, and systems change in a just transition to a sustainable world.

Her work at CBEY revolves around leadership training, bridging leadership and theories of change strategies deployed in business and other sectors, and thinking about new models for interdisciplinary, values-driven leadership. At Yale, she is also a member of the Community Conversations planning committee, serves as a student coordinator for the People, Equity, and the Environment Learning Community, and works in the Office of Student Affairs. Prior to graduate school, Jenna worked as the Assistant Director of the Sustainability Office at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. In this role, she developed and implemented Dartmouth’s sustainability offerings to support experiential learning, inclusive community building, and transformation of the campus’ operations. She led strategic planning efforts to set institution-wide sustainability goals, to realign hiring, professional development and office management to support inclusivity and increase diversity, to reduce impacts from waste and food sourcing, and to develop programming and infrastructure at the Dartmouth Organic Farm. She has developed and delivered leadership training programs for college students building on awareness-based systems change and design thinking frameworks.

Jenna enjoys gardening, exploring the woods, skiing, baking, and doing puzzles. When she’s not in New Haven, she can be found raising a rotating gaggle of farm animals. Jenna graduated from Dartmouth College in June 2011 with a BA in Anthropology and Environmental Studies.
