Jenny loves a good story. She believes that everyone she meets has a story to tell, and her job at Statesboro Magazine is to seek out the people whose stories come together to weave the fabric that is Statesboro.

She spends most of her off-time on the Foss Family Farm and enjoys telling stories with old friends, reading Southern literature, working in the yard, and fishing in the pond; all past times that are a part of what she considers to be the superior quality of life that the area provides. Jenny serves the community on the Board of Directors of the Statesboro Main Street Farmers Market and on the Creek on the Blue Mile Commission. She is past president of the Board of Directors of the Averitt Center for the Arts and the Statesboro Convention & Visitors Bureau.
