Associate, Facility Performance Advisor
Parks & Rec
With 15 years and various roles in a municipal park and recreation agency, Jenna had the opportunity to see recreation from many different angles. Her range of expertise includes community engagement, operational analysis, technical and creative writing. She’s also a skilled government jargon interpreter and questioner of that’s-just-how-we-do-things policies. Jenna loves the versatility of the recreation profession and the amazingly resourceful people who dedicate their lives to it. She believes a day without play is meaningless. Just stay in bed. Jenna is a former Recreation Superintendent for the City of Aurora, CO, Parks, Recreation, and Open Space Department.
