Jenny Jensen

Jenny Jensen is the Development and Marketing Specialist at Explore Austin where she creates publications, manages online content, grows marketing partnerships and projects, and executes fundraising campaigns.


Jenny graduated from Eastern Kentucky University with honors and a BA in Public Relations. Afterwards, she worked in sales before becoming the Public Relations and Special Events Director of the Richmond Chamber of Commerce. Jenny has worked at Explore Austin ever since she moved to Austin two and a half years ago.


Jenny loves reading, finding new restaurants, thrift shopping and adventuring with her husband, Nick, and her three dogs; Scout, Atticus, and Lil Sebastian. Traveling is also one of Jenny’s favorite pastimes; Jenny hopes to visit all 50 states and most recently was in Maine to cross off her 42nd state. Jenny is also a Texas State Parks Ambasador and loves visiting the many amazing state parks in Texas.


Growing up on a 52-acre farm, Jenny values and understands the limitations and relationships between humanity and the outdoor world. She has always believed in the power of leadership and the magnitude she has as an individual to create change. Jenny believes both leadership and adventure can easily be taken for granted, which is why Explore Austin’s mission of providing leadership, mentoring, and adventure is so near and dear to her heart.
