why do you love hope?
There are so many reasons why Jenna loves this place and calls it home: the genuine, loving and passionate faculty and staff members, being around such an amazing student body every day, Hope's location near downtown Holland, attending the Hope College basketball games and the atmosphere of the arena on game day.
Jenna loves going for walks and hikes with her husband, Seth, and their dog, Dutch, and spending time with family and friends. On Saturdays Jenna can often be found shopping on 8th Street. She also attends Pilates classes, loves learning more about health and nutrition, works as a Kids Hope tutor to a beautiful little girl at Holland East Public School, and helps volunteer and coordinate breakfast at the Community Kitchen at Western Theological Seminary.
