Jenna is a Partner and Managing Director of Insight at LCA as well as leading work for clients across the public and private sectors on corporate communications, campaigns, consultation and engagement.
Since joining LCA in 2008, she has led a number of major strategic briefs for the agency and at the moment she is helping to bring The Wave to London, working with the NLA, London Councils and the Mayor of London to launch the exciting Opportunity London campaign and advising Landsec on its profile and relationships and first major mixed-use scheme in the capital.

As well as counselling clients, Jenna leads LCA’s renowned Insight Team, ensuring the agency is one step ahead when it comes to local, regional and national politics and London news and issues. She is also lead editor of LCA’s award-winning news bulletin LDN - London in Short and leads the very popular LCA Women’s Network for women across the built environment sector. Jenna is also an experienced pundit and public speaker, primarily talking about London politics and planning.
Other highlights of Jenna’s LCA career so far include a secondment to open the Lee Valley White Water Centre, the first Olympic venue to open to the public in 2012, helping to promote Alexandra Palace’s major East Wing restoration project and working on the London Elects campaign to drive up voter turnout for the 2012 Mayoral and London Assembly elections.

Before LCA, Jenna worked as a Corporate Communications Manager for Reuters, writing and publishing internal news, planning events and helping to execute the communications strategy around the Thomson Reuters merger.
Jenna has spent most of her life in the capital, leaving only to complete a BA in English Literature at Cambridge University and, more recently, to spend three months in New York City just to make sure it wasn’t any better than London.
Jenna likes reading, cooking and eating and enjoys nothing more than when these activities are combined. When not concerned with Shepherd's Pie and the great American novel her impressively sized family take up a great deal of her time (mostly in a nice way).
