Jenny holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Central Florida and received her designation as a nationally certified practitioner of Diversity and Inclusion from DiversityFirst. She has lived in St Petersburg for more than 20 years and looks forward to working with the team at Habitat for Humanity PWP to further their mission of bringing people together to build homes, communities, and hope.
Brittney, a St. Petersburg native, says her admiration for education comes from her Grandfather the late educator Cecil B Keene Sr. who dedicated his life to education from 1958-2008.
