Meet the Team: QLer Jenna Koval

A born and bred Midwesterner, Jenna grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. After taking a brief detour to work on a farm in rural New Hampshire, she moved to Missoula to attend the University of Montana. Jenna graduated from the University of Montana in 2013 with a B.A. in Communication Studies. Shortly after, she moved to Boulder to pursue her dream of working with talented and innovative people in one of the most beautiful cities in America. 
Complex problem solving and learning opportunities get Jenna out of bed in the morning. She thrives on new situations (both professionally and personally), and loves a good challenge! 
When she is not at work, Jenna’s idea of a perfect day includes: Waking-up early to ski, making dinner, crocheting / crafting and watching some tv. When there is no snow on the ground Jenna enjoys road biking, fly fishing and going to concerts. 
Jenna is excited to be joining the Quick Left team as an Agile Project Manager, and she is looking forward to some new experiences!
