Jennie, a native of upstate New York, graduated from Michigan State University, College of Veterinary Medicine in 2007 and spent six years practicing equine and small animal medicine in Pennsylvania and Delaware. Her work with working equines as a veterinarian in developing countries around the world, including the Dominican Republic, India, Peru, Mexico, Nicaragua, Montserrat, and Costa Rica, inspired her interest in better understanding the relationships between animal health, livelihoods, and human health and nutrition. In May 2014, she received her Master of Public Health (MPH) degree with a global health concentration from the University of California, Berkeley. Her MPH research project investigated the relationships between working equine health and human health and livelihoods in Nicaragua. Jennie also interned with Food Tank: The Food Think Tank, and was part of the 2014 Next Generation Delegation class at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs annual Global Food Security Symposium. Jennie is particularly interested in sustainable and collaborative interventions to improve livelihoods of the world's poorest small holder farmers, and has a special love of working equines (horses, donkeys and mules).
