MEET THE TEAM
SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT
A serial multitasker, Jenna has been part of the Engel Entertainment team for more than 15 years. During much of that time she led the company’s development department, helping expand our reach across a broad spectrum of genres from science, adventure, and history, to docuseries, lifestyle, and feature-length documentaries.
She is the food editor at Parents magazine and author of two fabulous (if we dare say so ourselves) cookbooks: Real Baby Food and Smoothie-Licious. She has appeared on the Today Show numerous times as a family-friendly food expert.
Jenna grew up in Colorado, but now resides in Brooklyn with her husband, adorable daughter, and almost as adorable dog. She holds a B.A. from The George Washington University in electronic media and also has a culinary arts degree from the Institute of Culinary Education. Apart from being a culinary expert, she is conversant in French (très impressive, Jenna!).
