Her experience working with senior financial and entertainment executives exposed her to banking and business, and she obtained a Master’s degree to pursue investment management. Her reputation for honesty, hard work, dependability and accessibility helped her leverage those relationships into her current role. She forms close, personal ties with clients, believing that she can best serve them by knowing them thoroughly. Jenny and her team create tailored wealth strategies to help meet the needs of clients they serve, implementing credit and cash management services, estate planning and investment strategies.

After working for Century Plaza Hotel, Jenny began her financial services career at Smith Barney (now Morgan Stanley Smith Barney), then joined UBS (2000-2009). She transitioned to her current role at J.P. Morgan in 2009.
