Hi, I'm Jenna
WHERE I COME FROM
There’s nothing extravagant or over-the-top about me. In fact, I’m just like YOU! I’m a hardworking, Jewish-American, strong-willed Mother of two, and devoted Wife that became fed up with sitting on the proverbial sidelines, yelling at my television and made the conscious decision to run for Florida’s House of Representatives where I can be the voice for my Friends and Neighbors from my community.
Originally hailing from New York, I made the transition here to beautiful South Florida with my Parents at a young age and found my forever home where my roots are firmly planted in the salt water of our glistening Atlantic Ocean. I graduated High School with honors here and eventually attended Florida State University in Tallahassee, right in the shadow of our Capital not knowing then just what that tall, looming building would have in store for me!
A THRIVING CAREER
I am the living embodiment of the “American Dream!” I am a Self-Starter that has diligently strived to achieve my very personal best in everything I do and that take-charge approach led me to begin my career path at the tender age of 19-years old in the Construction and Commercial Real Estate Development Industry. Applying my strong work ethic and “can-do” attitude, I steadily rose through the industry to eventually become a professional Financial Controller for not one, but two major Construction and Real Estate Development Companies here in South Florida where I oversee and work with multiple, large-scale construction and development projects at once and manage hundreds of millions of dollars in funds and assets for my Companies.
A DEDICATED WIFE & MOM
In my personal life, I am a Wife and Best Friend to my amazing Husband whom I get a lot of my drive and motivation from. As a United States Marine and Government Contractor, my Husband has served our Country for most of his adult life in one way, shape, or form and is not only my closest Confidant, but also a large part of my “take-charge” approach to life. I am the Mother of two beautiful Children who are my whole world and when I am not working, I’m keeping in shape, chasing those two around constantly.
“I Want to be YOUR Voice.”
Having a voice in this world is having the ability to make a difference! To stand out from the mediocre and the mundane! To proudly stand on the principles you believe in and say to the world, “HERE I AM AND HERE IS WHO I AM!”
It is this simple, yet profound statement that motivates me in my campaign to be YOUR State Representative in Tallahassee. I want to be the sounding board for the amazing Floridians that I am to represent! You work hard in your daily lives to support your Families and build your own version of the American Dream right here in sunny South Florida and I am going to be the one who makes sure it stays that way!
Our beautiful District 96 encompasses such a vast array of people and cultures, so diverse and so special, that when brought together, we all represent what it means to be Americans…to be Floridians! The ability of a people, vastly different in origin from each other, but brought together under one red, white, and blue flag to stand shoulder to shoulder and support this great State and the things we hold close to our hearts.
Your beliefs, your traditions, and your hard-earned dollars are just that, YOURS! They’re not given to you by anyone and they can’t be taken away by anyone. Some may try, but with your help in getting me to the Florida House of Representatives, I’ll stand proudly on the House floor in Tallahassee and represent all of you with integrity, with courage, and with commitment!
