Deputy director, Row New York
Her Rescue Mission
A former collegiate rower, Jennie became a part-time coach with Row New York six years ago. The program combines the sport with academic support to help disadvantaged young people build confidence and encourage them to attend college. Now she works for the organization full-time. "It's especially rewarding to have kids getting into college who never thought they'd go," Jennie says. "That happens every year, but it never gets old."
