Jenny joined Kyle House Group in November 2015 after working for two years in the United States Senate.

Jenny previously served in the office of Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL), where she provided policy analysis and legislative research for international trade, financial services, taxes, small business, and budget issues. Her role also included managing stakeholder relations and overseeing constituent communications for these issues.

During her time in the Senate, she worked closely with members of the Senate Finance Committee and the Office of the United States Trade Representative to markup bills reauthorizing Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) and trade enforcement and facilitation, and extending the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA), Generalized System of Preferences (GSP), and the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program.

She attended Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Georgia where she majored in Political Science and English Literature. She was awarded the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship to study at the University of Hyderabad, India during her junior year. In 2012, she received her Master's in Security Studies from University College London.
