Jenna's production education began in 2006 while she was volunteering in the promotions department of a 5 station radio group (Visionary Related Entertainment) in Hawaii.
She learned basic editing in Cool Edit Pro and Soundforge with beat matching under the tutelage of one of the morning show hosts.
While there she would also occasionally voice commercials. She was taught how to create and edit files for on air use and in short time, she became a regular unofficial assistant to the Production Director, employed as an independent contractor. While she worked almost full time in the Production Department she continued to get coaching from a couple other Dj's so that she could learn more editing styles.
She covered the Production Director position at V.R.E. a couple times until her employment there came to an end. Within hours she was contacted for a temporary production job for Ron Jacobs at whodaguyhawaii.com. There, she improved her comfort level in board operations, production work, and gained more confidence in her own talents and ability in the field.
When she was in college pursuing a certificate in Radio Production she spent a semester as an Adobe Audition tutor and then another semester as a volunteer in the Beginning Radio Production class where she coached reads, helped with microphone technique and helped students learn and work with Adobe Audition.
In 2020 she became a Communicator Award winner.
She is currently a Commercial Producer at a production hub in Dallas Texas.
