Jenna is honored to be competing on the National USA Ambassador stage this year as your Miss Central Carolina USA Ambassador 2018!
In 2013 Jenna graduated with an Associate in Arts degree and recognition on the Dean's list. This fall she will be continuing her pursuit of a Bachelor's in Hospitality Management with a minor in Business. After graduating, she aspires to be a wedding and event coordinator.
Jenna is a performer for Walt Disney World; helping bring magic to life for those young and old! In her free time she enjoys completing art projects, acting, kickboxing, modeling, traveling, volunteering, and promoting her platform.
Jenna loves giving back to her community by volunteering. She received the Presidential Service Award for 2016 and 2017. She loves volunteering with the Give Kids the World Village, her local food basket, and the Ronald McDonald House. She and her sister, Landry, co-founded a volunteer group in their hometown called S.O.S. Squad. They started this group of young volunteers to help those who are unable to perform every day tasks. She collects books for "Books 4 Smiles," and grocery bags to be made into blankets/waterproof mats for the homeless.
Most recently Jenna went on a mission trip to Puerto Rico to assist those recovering from the devastating 2017 hurricane season. She took nearly 3,200 items for donation. While in PR she volunteered with a crisis center, worked in a community garden, handed out food to those in need, visited an orphanage, packed 900 meals from FEMA to be delivered to families in need, and taught CPR.
Jenna promotes her platform "A Heartbeat Away," where she advocates the need for proper heart screenings, teaches CPR, and aids in placing AED's (Automated External Defibrillator) in public places to prevent death by Sudden Cardiac Arrest. By teaching CPR and how to use an AED, Jenna shows others how they too, can save a life! "Along with Parent Heart Watch, TOGETHER WE WILL end preventable deaths by 2030!"
