Jena was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. Her passion to empower others sparked when she worked at a volunteer center for survivors of sexual abuse in Dallas. In 2002, she made her way across the pond to train as a Counselling Psychologist. In London, she worked in hospitals, out-patient services, universities and women centers with a wide range of people and life challenges. For over 20 years, Jena has helped others to recognize and maximize their inner strengths in order to overcome obstacles and to change their lives for the better.
Jena currently practices as a coach, a psychologist, and a journalist. In her spare time, she travels, snowboards, kitesurfs, and generally climbs up or jumps off anything in nature.
When Leya founded Pineapple Support, Jena jumped at the opportunity to get involved. Now as a director and coach for Pineapple Support, she aims to further Leya’s vision, to create a community of support and make a difference in the lives of its members.
