Jenna, Living Our Cause

Name: Jenna Capnerhurst

How long have you worked for the Y? I started working at the Longmont Y as a Summer Camp Program Leader in May 2014.

Favorite pets: Puppies, of course!
The most fun part about my job is: The unpredictability. Everyone has their own unique personality, but kids don’t hold back. They ask questions, they say whatever silly thing is on their mind, and they’re not afraid to laugh about it. Each day is different and it keeps things fun.

Favorite bands: The Lumineers, The Head & The Heart, Romeo Santos

Favorite sports team: Go Buffs!

The most meaningful part of my job is: Having the opportunity to be a positive influence for the kiddos and watching them grow into themselves. Having known some of them for years now, it’s so cool to see the individual improvements and watch them grow into awesome little humans.

Favorite way to relax: On a beach somewhere

I would love to travel to: Peru
