She currently works as director of communications, where she continues to do all of her favorite things: design, edit and write. A Decatur native, Jenell earned a bachelor's degree in mass communication - journalism from Southeast Missouri State University in 2003 and a master's degree in communication from the University of Illinois at Springfield in 2005. Outside of Millikin, she keeps busy chasing after her young son, and spending the occasional downtime with her husband, Gary.
