Coach Jenni tried rowing for the first time during a middle school summer camp. She loved it so much that she became an avid sweep rower at the Brockville Rowing club in Canada, and also pulled her sister into the sport. Coach Jenni went on to win countless regattas, including the Canadian Henley four years in a row and a third place finish at the British Henley. After relocating to the San Diego area in September 2022, Coach Jenni found Community Rowing of San Diego while looking for a high school rowing team for her son. After feeling the warm welcome of the CRSD members and community, she decided to join by becoming a coach.
Coach Jenni now leads our adult Learn to Row programs. She loves sharing her passion for the sport with adults who are discovering the fitness and therapeutic benefits of rowing for the first time. A cancer survivor and thriver, Coach Jenni is also an advocate of healthy nutrition, teaching vegan cooking classes to financially disadvantaged communities in Imperial Beach.
