Jenny has been with IAE since the beginning of 2012. As IAE’s Native Plant Materials Coordinator, she splits her time between coordinating the Willamette Valley Native Plant Materials Partnership and managing other projects such as rare plant production and outplanting, native seed collection, and procuring plant materials for restoration seeding.
Jenny received a BS in biology from the University of Oregon in 1999. From 2000-2004 she lived in Ecuador, working as a field station volunteer and then as a naturalist guide at ecotourism lodges in the Ecuadorian Amazon and montane rainforests, which sparked her interest in plants and native ecosystems. Since she returned to Oregon, she has worked as a seed collector and field botanist, weed surveyor and mapper, forestry tech, and with native plant materials, coordination, and plan development in the natural resources field in the southern Willamette Valley. In her spare time, Jenny telemark skis, hikes, gardens, and plays music with friends.
