Having attended UVA as an undergraduate, Jenny is excited to return to Charlottesville as a Double Hoo. After graduating from the McIntire School of Commerce, she moved to Manhattan where she primarily worked in financial services. She began her career as a consultant at FactSet Research Systems, a financial database and analytics firm, and then transitioned to a recruiting role at Dynamics Search Partners, a boutique firm specializing in the alternative investments space.
With a strong interest in cause marketing and entrepreneurship, Jenny helped a small business entrepreneur launch Project Migration, a social enterprise brand focused on providing funds for clean water projects and medical supplies to impoverished communities.
Now that she’s back in Charlottesville, Jenny is a big supporter of the case method, her learning teammates and Section B shenanigans. In her free time, she hopes to explore Charlottesville’s restaurant, nightlife and music scene in addition to volunteering, practicing pilates and making embarrassingly cheesy jokes. On any given day, you might find her daydreaming about new and exotic places to add to her bucket list, debating small business ideas or bookmarking interesting interior design and architecture projects.
