Born and raised on a dairy farm in central Michigan, Jenna has shown livestock throughout her 4-H career competing state and nationally. Jenna earned an associate degree in agricultural production and management from Lake Land College in central Illinois. She received her bachelor’s degree following additional study at Oklahoma State University and Eastern Illinois University.
Why did she choose to join the Tillable team? “It was really the mission statement,” Jenna says. “Growing up on a dairy farm, being in ag, you have a heart for it; you have a heart for the people; you have emotional ties. And I really want to do good. I want to leave a positive mark somewhere. I want to know at the end of the day that I did good for somebody.” Seeing that very real possibility at Tillable is what convinced Jenna to sign on.
Jenna says one thing at Tillable has been a pleasant surprise: how totally approachable and accessible her boss is. “The last two positions I had, I was told to use my direct bosses only as a last resort. Jamie [Tillable’s vice president of sales] is the complete opposite. He wants me to touch base throughout the week, and I have full accessibility to him. That’s huge for me.”
