Jenny is so excited to be back for a second year with Blue Engine. She graduated from Washington University in St. Louis, where she majored in Biology with a concentration in Neuroscience. Since age 16, Jenny spent her summers working as a camp counselor in northern Wisconsin. It was there that Jenny discovered immense joy in working with children. During her final summers she staffed and then directed the teen leadership development programs. In college, Jenny worked as a Residential Advisor for freshmen students. There, she learned the positive impacts of strong relationships on academic achievement, mental health, and overall student happiness. All these experiences led Jenny to Blue Engine and her first year affirmed her decision to pursue a career in education. Jenny looks forward to eventually teaching high school biology.
