Jenny is the director of operations at the NC Rural Center, where she coordinates and manages all major virtual and in-person events for the Rural Center, as well as events for the Center’s two nonprofit subsidiaries, Thread Capital and CornerSquare Community Capital. She also provides oversight and ongoing management of the Center’s Client Relationship Management (CRM) system.
Prior to the Rural Center, Jenny worked for more than a decade in community relations and philanthropy for PNC and its predecessor, RBC Bank.
An Asheville native, Jenny received her bachelor’s degree in mass communications from North Carolina State University and is completing a certificate program in applied behavioral economics at Texas A&M University. She currently serves on the board of Arts Together and has previously served on the boards of the American Dance Festival (ADF) and the North Carolina Council on Economic Education (NCCEE).
In her elusive free time, Jenny walks her two hound dogs and plays the silly games that her son loves to invent. Jenny and her husband, who met the night the Hurricanes won the Stanley Cup, are on a mission to visit all 31 NHL arenas and are more than halfway there.
