Jenny’s unique experience as the owner/operator of a Downtown Victoria business for 12 years provides the RiseUP! Youth Employment Program with employer insights as well as connections to the Victoria business community. 

While Jenny is not at work, she can be found exploring the beautiful outdoors with her family and beloved dog, Louis.
