Community Engagement Director
Amy Jenson was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She studied at the University of Arkansas (Go Hogs!) where she met her husband. She moved to Oklahoma State University and graduated with a bachelor's degree in multimedia journalism.
She spent nearly a decade working in TV news, but dipped her toes in the nonprofit world along the way, including with Fostering Connections. She saw the needs in our community and wanted to use her background skills to help make an impact on our foster families.
Amy served as our mobile coordinator for a year and a half and has now stepped into a new role as our community engagement director.
