Jenna (she/her) is the current Coach of the Champlain College Dance Team and weekly Yoga Instructor through Student Activities. Growing up as a dancer & mover, Jenna has been drawn to all types of movement as a connection to our bodies, minds, and spirit.

Jenna’s passion for teaching and mentorship has been evident in her work as Dance Coach for the Champlain College Dance Team for the past 7 years. Her goal as a dance and yoga teacher is to cultivate a safe space for students to find what they need through movement, whatever that looks like!

Champlain College holds a special place for Jenna, as she is an alumni- graduated in 2015 with a BS in Marketing & Digital Interactions.

Favorite local eateries and things to do in Vermont:

A perfect day in Vermont would be the sun shining, a stop at Burlington Farmers Market for an iced coffee, a bouquet of local flowers, and a donut! Followed by anything to do with Lake Champlain, kayaking or paddle boarding! After a long day, dinner at small local restaurants like Poco, Taco Gordo, or May Day – to enjoy really great cocktails and unique food!
