Inform USA Webinar: Ageism is Getting Old
MatureMinds Coordinator, Community Development
Catholic Family Services of Simcoe County
Prior to working with Catholic Family Services as the MatureMinds Coordinator, Jenna engaged older adults through virtual platforms, worked in family ministry, and directed a youth centre. Her educational background is in Community Recreation from Brock University and Niagara College. For over a decade, Jenna has been a “storyteller” for those whose voices often get lost in the shuffle. Through both poetry and prose, she has advocated for the encouragement and resiliency found in others. In recent years, Jenna has become a spokesperson against ageism, recognizing that a cultural shift needs to occur if we are to see “growing old” as an opportunity, not a liability. Jenna is passionate about her faith, puns, and people. She wants people to know that they are valued and firmly believes that the greatest superpower is hope.
