Jenna joined the WMBB team as a multimedia journalist in March 2021.
She is a Georgia native and graduated from the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia with a B.A. in Journalism.
Jenna has had a passion for the broadcast news industry since she was 13 years old. She was an anchor for her middle school’s morning news program, and she fell in love with the job. Since then, she knew she wanted to make it her career.
During her time in college, Jenna was a news intern at WGXA, the ABC & Fox affiliate in Macon, GA. She also worked as a freelance journalist and had the opportunity to show her true passion for video storytelling.
Jenna was a proud member of Di Gamma Kappa, UGA’s professional broadcast society. Through DGK, she met and connected with many nationally and internationally-recognized journalists and news personalities.
She was also a reporter and anchor for Grady Newsource, the student-run news broadcast serving the Northeast Georgia area. While working with Grady Newsource, Jenna was the main anchor for the three-hour live, historical 2020 Election show.
Jenna is thrilled to work in the same area she would go to for vacation with her family as a child. If you see her, feel free to say hello and “Go Dawgs!”
