Beyond her work with student-athletes in the secondary school setting, Jenna has a background working with semi-pro adult league Football (Mill City Eagles), Masspike Volleyball Camps, leading Strength and Conditioning camps, and in the clinical physical therapy setting.

“We are thrilled to have Jenna join our staff,” said Feehan Athletic Director Christian Schatz. “Jenna brings a great energy as well as a wealth of knowledge and experience to our athletic department. She is passionate about working with student-athletes and very excited to be a Shamrock! Jenna will certainly help provide a safe, healthy, and rewarding experience for our student-athletes.”
