She successfully earned a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education at Northern Arizona University, but found accounting to be her true calling. She has since spent her career working in accounting for large publicly traded and smaller privately held companies.
Jena was born and raised in Arizona, but her love of the ocean and cooler weather brought her to San Diego in 1998. She enjoys surfing, attending music concerts, knitting, travel, and spending time with her cat, Hazelnuts.
