Jenny is a Software Engineer on the Civic Apps Team at Azavea.
Jenny is a proud Philadelphia transplant from St. Louis, where she graduated from Washington University with a B.A. in Environmental Biology and International Studies. In her active pursuit of GIS work, she got to radio track turtles for a summer and map farmland for an environmental NGO in Ecuador. She found her way to programming through GIS and her participation with Code for America.
A civil servant at heart, she has also worked in various capacities for education and social justice organizations. Highlights include an urban farming summer camp and a scholarship fund for rural Ecuadorean students.
Outside the office, Jenny can be found improv dancing, hiking, and cooking in restaurants around Philadelphia.
