SANCA has a new administrative manager; she may be new to her job and new to you but she’s no stranger to SANCA. Our sharply dressed captain of the office team did her first handstand spotted by Chuck and Jo in 2004. She started off as a student but by 2005 she had volunteered to help Tara whip our school into shape. She took home a mountain of paper waivers to input into our first computer database system.
With circus still in her heart Jenna shifted gears personally to focus on professional development. She headed off into the world to make it a better place through non-profit management. She spent 5 years working with The Center for Early Learning, helping to find funding and support for headstart and many other programs for pre-school age children throughout the State of WA. Because she can’t resist us Jenna was back again in 2011 as a Development Volunteer working with Jeff Deveaux. She worked on both SANCAthon and Up, with a Twist, helping us to make the money that keeps the lights on and the magic happening.
Working at SANCA brings together all her loves: non-profit management, creating educational opportunities for all children and circus. When I asked her how her new job was going she said ” I’m overjoyed. The work is challenging, the people are magical and the mission is inspiring. ”
