Born and raised in Moline, Jenna is thrilled to join the team at KWQC. Jenna grew up watching KWQC, but spent the last three years in the Wild West, reporting and anchoring in Casper, Wyoming.

During her time in Casper, Jenna won Best News Anchor in 2017 and 2nd Best Photography. She frequently reported on politics, spending two months in Cheyenne at the Legislative Session. She’s interviewed Senators, Congressman, and Presidential Candidates. She also enjoyed investigative reporting… and stories about cute animals.

Jenna attended DePaul University in Chicago graduating with a Bachelor’s in Journalism. She interned at NBC5 in Chicago, learning from the best, Carol Marin. It was her experience at DePaul that truly motivated Jenna to work hard to keep you informed about your community.

When you don’t see Jenna on TV, she’s probably playing tennis, cooking, working out, reading, or hanging with her nephews or two cats.
