Jenny oversees our children’s ministries from infants to fifth grade. Email:

Where did you grow up and how did you make your way to Austin?
I grew up in Austin.

What is your former work experience?
Prior to becoming the director of children’s ministries, I worked full time in film production. My last movie was a documentary about the Broken Spoke in Austin; it received the “Audience Favorite” award at SXSW in 2016.

When did you start at Oak Hill UMC?
My first day as director was March 1, 2017.

What are your primary duties?
My primary duties are to coordinate programs for our sweet kiddos—ages birth through fifth grade, including Sunday school classes and summer camps.

What do you enjoy most about your job?
Without a doubt, my favorite part of my job is working with our precious little people and the amazing volunteers we have supporting their spiritual growth!

How does your position help minister to others?
I think by making the Children’s Building a happy and enjoyable place to be, our children are associating church with happiness and positive experiences. The No. 1 thing I want our kiddos to know is that they are safe, welcomed, and loved by us and by God!

What is one thing that few people know about you?
I once received yellow roses from John Travolta!

Describe Oak Hill UMC in one word.
AWESOME, of course!
