She majored in Cell Biology and Neuroscience at Montana State University, and enjoys making jewelry, drawing, painting and any other creative outlet she can discover in her free time. Jenna is also addicted to traveling; she studied abroad in Costa Rica in high school, and has made her way through Southeast Asia, China, Europe, and North and Central America. She hopes to see the world by traveling through dentistry in the future!
