Over the years, Jenna has worked as a lawyer, a writer, and even as a space camp counselor. The link between them? Kids!
After graduating from Barnard College, Columbia University with a degree in literature and creative writing, Jenna worked for a stint in children’s informational publishing before going to Fordham University School of Law. Jenna began her legal career in New York City as a lawyer for children before becoming a litigator and a trustee of a children’s advocacy center in New Jersey.
After a decade of working as a lawyer, Jenna returned to her first love: books! As an author, Jenna now shares the joy of reading with young children. She lives in northern New Jersey with her great loves: her husband, Mark, and their young son, Henry.
Jenna is a member of SCBWI and Julie Hedlund’s 12×12 Picture Book Challenge and was selected as a 2020 #PBParty Finalist and a 2020 #PBChat Mentee.
The Loud Librarian (Atheneum/Simon & Schuster) is Jenna’s debut picture book. She is represented by Alyssa Eisner Henkin of Birch Path Literary.
