Q&A with Jenna

 

Q: When do you have the most fun at work?

A: I am a numbers geek. I love gathering the data and figuring out how to turn it into a story that is helpful to the client. It is even better when the data helps identify an opportunity to help society as a whole.

 

Q: Where is your favorite spot in the world?

A: I love our home in Vermont. Our 10-acre plot is a piece of paradise. We are creating our own little farm, learning how to be stewards of the land and to become more sustainable human beings.

 

Q: What are the ideas that drive you?

A: Conservation. Challenge. Opportunity.

 

Q: How do you spend your time when you’re not working?

A: Vermont has five seasons, and we spend as much time outside as possible. In the autumn, we marvel at all the fall colors. During the winter, we take advantage of the ski mountain that is 15 minutes away. Next, there is an unofficial “mud season”—you can’t have it all—followed by a spectacular spring for planting our gardens and summer for swimming in the river by our farm.
