Jenny was born in Los Angeles, California, but her family relocated to the Bay Area right at the beginning of the “Silicon Valley” era. Jenny travelled to east for her undergraduate degree and then returned to San Francisco in 2001 for her first job out of college with a relatively unknown management consulting “startup”- Bridgespan Group. Her experience at Bridgespan inspired her to join the front lines of nonprofit work and Jenny relocated to San Diego where she earned her M.S.W. For several years, Jenny worked as a therapist specializing in: domestic violence, youth in foster care, sexually abusive behavior, and crisis case management. Through her clinical work with Jewish Family Service, Jenny became a founding member, and is now a senior manager, of the North County Hub, a center for talent development and creativity. The Hub is an experimental concept birthed by Leichtag Foundation to enhance collaboration, inspire creative Jewish agricultural-based programs, and nurture professional growth within the staff of local nonprofits. The goal of this work is to create innovative new partnerships, leverage resources to increase program impact, and nurture and grow talent in the Jewish communal professional pipeline. The Hub was designed to be an environment where both members and guests can ideate, create and push the norms in the fields of Jewish engagement, social justice, agricultural and environment, and connections to Israel.
