Jenny is passionate about financial planning. Growing up, she saw firsthand the awesome impact that following a financial plan can have. Her parents worked with their financial advisor to develop and implement a plan to retire at 50 years old. Jenny is still impressed that they were able to accomplish such an audacious goal. She is grateful that her parents instilled in her the values of diligence and frugality from an early age. Jenny is eager to pass on the lessons learned to her clients, so they too can put themselves in a position to accomplish their own financial goals.
Jenny started her financial services career at Edward Jones in 2007, where she worked for seven years as a branch office administrator. She joined the Nevada Family Wealth team in 2015. Jenny’s dedication to her clients has motivated her in continuing her education. She earned her CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification in 2017.
Jenny is proud to be a native Nevadan. She graduated from the University of Nevada with a Bachelor of Science degree in international business. The highlight of her college tenure was the six months she spent studying abroad in Bilbao, Spain. Jenny also managed both the Starbucks and Keva Juice on-campus stores as a student, experiences that were tremendously helpful in honing her leadership and communication skills. One of Jenny’s proudest accomplishments was earning the prestigious Girl Scout Gold Award. Her experience as a Girl Scout led her to become a steadfast believer in giving back to her community. Today, she serves as the NB Ewes committee secretary for Nevada Bighorns Unlimited, and is also an active member of the Junior League of Reno.
One of Jenny’s greatest joys is to watch the sunrise after hiking to the top of a mountain with her two dogs, Tig and Ali. A lover of the outdoors, she also enjoys backpacking, skiing, hunting and fishing with her husband, McKinnon.
