She went to the School for Educational Enrichment, a local high school in El Paso, and after matriculation enrolled at the University of North Carolina (UNC), from which she obtained a bachelor’s degree in journalism.

Moreover, she covered the Rio 2016 Olympic Games for the Olympic News Service, including various press conferences and interviews with athletes, which were then published in Associated Press and USA Today.
After she obtained her degree, Jenny found employment at FOX SPORTS Australia. Thanks to her Mexican heritage, she was fluent in the Spanish language from an early age, and so able to conduct on-camera interviews with professional soccer players in the Spanish language, questioning their personal and professional aspirations. She would later provide English translations of her interviews, and publish them in various sporting magazines.
She worked for FOX SPORTS Australia only for a month, stationed in Brisbane.
After her short stint in Australia, Jenny returned to the US where she was hired by Portland Timbers as a Digital and Social Media Intern, responsible for managing Portland Timbers and Thorn’s social media platforms, and conducting on-camera post-game interviews with players. She remained in position for five months, before she was hired by the Orlando City SC as a sports reporter.
Rise to Prominence
She was a digital media host for all Orlando City and Orlando Pride platforms.
Moreover, she served as a sideline reporter for live television broadcasts, and once again thanks to Mexican heritage, conducted interviews in the Spanish language, and offered live translation between Spanish-English, bridging the gap between the players and supporters caused by a language barrier.
To speak further of her accomplishments, Jenny was the producer of the documentary “Bleed Purple” which highlighted the team’s pre-season, and did all interviews that were featured in the documentary.
She was becoming more popular, thanks to her dedication, and was noticed by CBS Sports in early 2020. At first she refused offers, but after her contract with Orlando City SC expired, she joined CBS Sports in September 2020.
