Jenn’s passion for international travel stemmed from a love of learning foreign languages. After studying Spanish and French in high school, she tackled Mandarin Chinese in college, eventually studying abroad in China. She later returned to Beijing as a Princeton-in-Asia fellow to work with a boutique sustainable travel company. What started as a one-year fellowship set her on a career path that eventually included over a decade living and working in East and Southeast Asia. She has worked extensively as a project manager in the social impact space, helping both businesses and nonprofits launch and scale their operations in Asia, with her work spanning global health, women’s empowerment, financial inclusion, and sustainable tourism. She currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area where she serves as the Director of Operations, Administration, and Finance at the Center for Empowering Refugees and Immigrants, a nonprofit providing multi-lingual mental health and social services to refugee and immigrant communities. An avid traveler, Jenn has visited over 40 countries to date and has been to every continent. She is proficient in Mandarin Chinese and Spanish, and can speak basic Lao, Thai, French, and Italian. She has led Putney programs in Vietnam, China, and Cambodia, as well as programs to Florence, Oxford, and Shanghai.
