Jenni joined the student support services team in January 2016 after eight years in various counseling and support roles working with at-risk adolescents. Jenni earned her B.S. in Human Services and her Masters in Professional Counseling, both from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. She is a Nationally Certified Counselor, Licensed Mental Health Counselor, and a Certified International Alcohol and Drug Counselor.

Originally from the small town of Iron Ridge, Wis., Jenni moved to Sioux City in March of 2011, when her husband Joe accepted the Assistant football coach position at Briar Cliff. They have son named Cameron, who keeps them on their toes.

In her spare time, Jenni enjoys traveling back to Wisconsin to visit family, shopping, crafting and attending sporting events. Jenni looks forward to getting to know students and always has candy in her office — so stop by and say hi!
