Jenna joined Cochrane Saxberg as an articling student in June 2022 following her graduation from the University of Manitoba’s Robson Hall Faculty of Law. Prior to law school, Jenna graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Environmental Studies.

During law school, Jenna was an active member of the Robson Hall community. She served on the Environmental Law Group Executive for three years and volunteered with the Winnipeg Food Council through Pro Bono Students Canada (2020-21). Jenna is a member of the Manitoba Metis Federation, and as such, served on the Executive of the Manitoba Indigenous Law Students’ Association (2020-21) as well as the National Indigenous Law Students’ Association (2020-21).
