Jenny Smith has joined USciences’ Student Health and Counseling (SHAC) as the Counseling Office Coordinator.
Smith is excited to be part of a team where she can contribute to mental health awareness and advocacy sharing, “our brain health is just as important as our body health.” She is particularly interested in research surrounding radical openness, vulnerability, and social connectedness.
Originally from New Jersey, Smith has spent the last 9 years living in Chicago before returning to Philadelphia where she lives with her husband and two cats.
Smith and her husband had a private, pandemic-style wedding in November of 2020, and have since been exploring the Wissahickon trail by foot and bike. Looking ahead to post-pandemic life, Smith is excited to explore the Philly West Coast Swing dance scene, and visit her siblings out of state. She is also looking forward to becoming an aunt in summer 2021.
