Jenna’s avalanche education began when she moved to Jackson, Wyoming, in the 1990s, where she joined the pro ski patrol at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and started teaching for NOLS. In 2004, she moved south to attend the University of Utah’s Physician Assistant program, and now works in Neurosurgery and Trauma at Intermountain Medical Center. When not working as a PA, she works as a ski patroller at Alta, a guide with Powderbird, and an instructor with AAI. In 2014 she spent a month on Denali’s West Buttress as a park service medical volunteer. She loves teaching, learning about, and being in and around snow.
