Jenny has worked with VRLTA for six years - long enough to be the go-to person around the office for most things! She keeps all of our staff on track, supports our members in ways big and small, and ensures the office runs smoothly. A lifelong Richmond-area resident educated in the area, Jenny has seen first-hand how Richmond has grown from a sleepy city to one offering a great dining scene, tons of craft breweries (trying to visit them all takes up many evenings!), and so many fun and entertaining things to do. Jenny lives in the West End with her husband, Jim, and sons Bryce and Jason. They also share their home with a well-loved feline, Mac.
More about Jenny...
What is your ultimate Virginia weekend getaway?
I love the beach, so it would have to be a quick trip to Sandbridge.
What is your favorite cuisine, and a favorite Virginia restaurant that serves it?
I don’t think I can pick one favorite cuisine. I’d have to say that we love Tazza Kitchen and to celebrate a family milestone, we choose The Hard Shell.
Which places are on your travel bucket list – Virginia and beyond?
I have quite a few places in Virginia I’d love to visit namely The Inn at Little Washington and The Homestead - I'm looking forward to VA1 2021! Bucket list outside of Virginia would have to be Ireland. I’m part Irish and my family has strong roots there.
Mountains or beach?
Totally the beach…love the sand, the sea and the people watching!
Eat out or carry out?
After several months of carrying out, I am most excited about getting back out into restaurants!
Amusement park or camping?
Would have to go with amusement park on this one. I love going to both Kings Dominion and Busch Gardens with family and friends.
Name a place in Virginia you’d like to visit.
As a native Virginian, I am ashamed to say that I have never been to Luray Caverns. I have heard so many people rave about their time spent there and want to see it for myself!
What’s your area’s best-kept secret?
I would have to say being able to go from the mountains to the beach in just a few hours. So many wonderful things to do in Virginia, I can’t name just one!
Favorite place for a beer or a cocktail?
I love going out and trying new places, but I would have to say it’s a toss-up between having a beer at Ardent Craft Ales or a margarita at Tazza Kitchen.
Perfect day in your (Virginia) hometown?
My perfect day is starting off with a walk along the James River and ending up at ZZQ!
