Originally from Canada, Jenny earned a Bachelor of Tourism Studies from Brock University in Ontario, followed by a Masters of Environment, specialising in Education for Sustainability, from Griffith University in Australia. Jenny gained experience as an educator in both countries, working closely with schools and community groups on projects related to inclusion, the environment and intergenerational learning.
