Summary

Hi my name is Jenna Starkey and I’m a graduate from the University of Oregon’s school of journalism and communications with a BS in public relations and business administration.

I grew up in Berkeley, Calif., where I first developed my colorful, forward-thinking and positive West Coast attitude. Wherever I am, I am known for my enthusiasm and endless curiosity. I am passionate about music, design, learning by experience, the great outdoors, traveling the world and connecting effectively with others. 

I recently moved to San Francisco and am thrilled as ever to be here and continue pursuing my career in the most inspiring and beautiful place in the world. Feel free to drop me a line on my personal email or any of my social media channels if you wish. I appreciate you taking the time to read my work and I look forward to connecting with you soon!

Sincerely,

Jenna Starkey
