Speaker Bio
Prior to serving as Capacity Building Senior Specialist at Grounded Solutions Network, Jenee was Program Officer at Cornerstone Partnership, where she supported Cornerstone Homeownership Innovation Program (CHIP) grantees to increase the scale and capacity of their long term affordable homeownership programs and to share their experiences with the field. In the past, Jenee has managed projects and grants in a variety of areas – ranging from green jobs training to transportation planning – most recently at the National Association of Regional Councils.

Jenee received her BA from the George Washington University and is currently pursuing a Masters in Community and Economic Development from Pennsylvania State University. After returning from a semester of studying international development in Northeast Thailand, Jenee became increasingly aware of the significant barriers to equality and opportunity in her own community. She shifted her interest to economic and community development and began work on economic, workforce and community development issues in various roles. Eventually, she joined Cornerstone Partnership, first as a Grant Administrator and then as a Program Officer.

Jenee loves to read, and as a new homeowner, she’s trying to read up on home improvement projects that she can try very soon!
