About jenna
I was born and raised in LA, near the beach, playing volleyball. I went to UC Berkeley where I was a 4 year letter winner and top scholar for our Div 1 team. After school I lived in Milan Italy before returning to LA and working for the Lakers and then I met my husband, moved to SF and started my career in retail at Gap Inc. I have since helped launch an e-commerce gifting site, Wantful, and started and run my own handbag company, august, which has partnered with Banana Republic, Piperlime, The Four Seasons, the Plaza, Rachel Zoe, The NBA and many other incredible boutiques across the country. Recently, I made a big career change and joined Imperial Capital in their consumer division focused on helping consumer brands raise growth capital or get acquired.

Best advice you've ever been given

I need to thank one of my mentors at Gap - Allison - who told me to take a year off and travel around the world.

What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the community?

Experience, knowledge, connections and compassion for all aspects of retail.

Personal Passions, Charities, Hobbies:

Soul cycle, pilates, yoga, wine, food, travel, sports. Operation School Bell - the charity we support with our One-for-One giving a backpack to a student in need in LAUSD for every bag sold.

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

Learning a new area of my industry

Name one thing that scares the shit out of you:

clowns and sharks

If you could tell your 20 year old self one thing, what would it be?

My 20 year old self was playing Division 1 volleyball at Berkeley, stressing about a 4.0, working as a tutor at night and volunteering at a local school so I should have probably told myself to stop and smell the roses a bit more, though at the time I was having a blast and living with two amazing women, whom I love to this day!

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

My passion is helping other women, especially other female founders.
