Education Director, Downtown Clubhouse

831-423-3138 ext.31

Jennie started out as a Club Kid in Southern California at the age of 6. She helped out around her Clubhouse and it wasn’t long before she discovered her passion for working with youth. Her first job started at her Clubhouse and she worked there until she transferred to UC Santa Cruz to finish her degree. She searched for a local Club to continue her love for youth development and has been with our Downtown Clubhouse since 2018. Jennie graduated from UCSC in 2020 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology. She hopes to continue connecting with youth to give them a comforting place to be themselves and give them a voice. Jennie strives to provide a welcoming environment that fosters creativity, personal growth, and emotional development.
