Jenny developed her love for Nantucket while visiting her grandmother’s beach cottage in Surfside as a child. During her college years at Vanderbilt University, she spent her summers on the island conducting tours and eventually met her husband Stephen. Moving to the island permanently in 1985, she became sales manager of a local travel agency, eventually launching her real estate career in 1992.
With over 27 years of experience in real estate, Jenny’s knowledge of and connection to the island is a true asset. She possesses a deep understanding of the market stemming from her many transactions, clients, customers and island relationships, offering a transparent, honest and genuine approach to her work. In 2018, Jenny and Roberta White were delighted to join the Maury People together as a sales team.
Jenny is a lifelong swimmer, having achieved All-American status in high school and college, and has been involved with Swim Across America, a non-profit raising funds to fight cancer, for over 25 years. In 2013 she co-founded Swim Across America-Nantucket, an annual open water swim which raises funds to support on-island cancer treatment and palliative care, and is the captain of the Maury People’s SAA Team.
She and her husband Stephen have raised their two daughters, Justine and Liza, on the island. She is a member of the Nantucket Triathlon Club, the Monument Running Group, and St Paul’s Church and enjoys singing in the St Paul’s choir, the Nantucket Community Chorus, and the Nantucket Women’s Chorus.
