Jenna moved to New York in 2009 to work for the New York Times as a technology reporter. Before that, she lived in San Francisco and worked as a waitress and fact-checker at Wired Magazine. She is originally from Virginia, and studied biology and anthropology as an undergraduate at the University of Virginia. Having a background in science really helped her to see that she loved everything about information tech, infrastructure and thinking about how things work and evolve. Initially, Jenna felt alienated from tech culture because she didn't present as a stereotypical "nerd" but the more she dug into it, the more she became fascinated with the way the Internet, machines and software shape our understanding of ourselves, the world, and each other, and she's been doing that ever since.
