advocate AND community educator


In 2008 Jenny attended a presentation on human sex trafficking and couldn't believe what she was hearing and decided that she had to do something. Jenny started a retail business that raised funds for organizations that free men, women and children from human sex trafficking. That mission evolved and in 2012, she launched a nonprofit organization, Fierce Freedom, to educate and raise awareness of human trafficking in the Chippewa Valley and in 2013 opened their office in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

During a networking function in Eau Claire, Jenny learned of the Nonprofit Management Certificate program offered through Continuing Education at UW-Eau Claire and considered a door to be opened. Jenny felt that her organization was falling behind and struggled with how to move the organization ahead and thought that this program would provide the opportunity to teach her how she could move the organization forward.

"I personally felt I was at the end of knowing how to grow our organization with the experience and knowledge that I had. The Nonprofit Management Certificate program has been very helpful to Fierce Freedom, because the Board and leadership team can see that I have a clear vision and I have tools to implement the plan. These programs enforced that I was on the right track."
