Getting to know me...


Hello, my name is Jenna. I am an Ann Arbor resident, but grew up in the near-by town of Dexter. Currently I am a student at the University of Michigan where I will major in Communications.

I am lucky to have a wonderful family including Sharon, Ed, Caitlin, my fiance Greg, Greg and my kittens, Montoya and Ticonderoga (Monty and Tiki), and the whole Brand gang as well. My hobbies include reading, movies, podcasting, theater, dancing, sewing, and paper art.
