A portrait of Jeni Henrickson.

An experienced project manager, instructional designer, and creative director, I have expertise conceptualizing, leading, designing, and researching innovative education programs and learning experiences. My own experiences growing up abroad and working with schools worldwide have imbued me with a unique perspective as an instructional designer. I enjoy engaging diverse groups in transformational learning experiences, building learner confidence and community, and designing learning that is playful and visually engaging. I hold a special passion for the natural environment, geography/GIS, and international collaboration.

When not working, you’ll likely find me out on a trail somewhere at one of our beautiful state or national parks.
