More about Jena:
- Jena originally went to school to become an aquatic animal veterinarian. As she progressed in her degree, her passion turned towards researching animal behavior. She now hopes to become a zoologist.
- Outside of work, you can find her reading a Colleen Hoover novel or watching a sci-fi film. She enjoys spending time with her roommates and watching movies. She also loves to swim - she actually used to be a varsity swimmer in high school!
- Jena has wanted to work with animals since she was a child. Animal Planet was one source that developed her passion for wildlife. She would love to eventually be able to spot the differences in animal behavior by working with them.
- She has three pets - Loki (the anxious, but sweet, Jack Russell), Bentley (the sweet, senior Yorkie), and Tuck (a spunky, sassy, mixed mutt). All three are rescues from an animal shelter.
- Jena's favorite vacation spot is Myrtle Beach, SC or Florida.
