Jenna Bardroff

Jenna is an event coordinator, humane educator, and solutionary (a solution-oriented individual who consistently endeavors to create healthy, compassionate, and regenerative communities). Making the decision to be vegetarian at the age of 5, Jenna has always been motivated by the reward of making the world a better place. At 14 years old, Jenna initiated her first animal education program at a unique sanctuary, the same year she began college and adopted a vegan lifestyle. She has a B.S. degree in Integrative Biology, a Master of Arts degree in Humane Education, and has spent over 12 years researching the solutions to and consequences of problematic cultural eating behaviors. Jenna is an ambassador for the movement of transforming humans from a problematic species to a solutionary species and is an active event director and member of the Advisory Board for the non-profit organization, Solutionary Events. She is also the Executive Director for Vegetarians of Central Florida, an organization responsible for two of the largest vegan festivals in the country, and a member of the Board of Directors for Vegan Business Center, an initiative with the goal to support new vegan businesses. In addition, Jenna recently joined the Board of Directors for a new non-profit called VeganEvan’s Mission, a humane education program intended to change school cafeterias by empowering children in leadership positions to advocate for their health. She credits much of her success and advocacy accomplishments to the support and encouragement she has received from like-minded solutionaries and organizations such as The Pollination Project.
