Jayna was named after a cartoon character from the animated television series about a team of superheroes called Super Friends, which ran from 1973 – 1986. The show featured two Wonder Twins named Jayna and Zan. So, if Jayna’s older brother decided that the name was good enough for a TV superhero, it was good enough for his new baby sister.
As an associate consultant, Jayna enjoys providing consulting support and client relationship management for the Strategic Planning practice area. She also enjoys getting the chance to see — and be an integral part of — the inner workings of a small business.
Jayna is a University of Minnesota graduate who “bleeds maroon and gold” and enjoys attending Gopher athletic events along with her family, who tailgate with her at every Gopher game. Jayna and her family’s favorite word is the school cheer, Ski-U-Mah. And although she considers Minnesota winters a bear and summer road construction no better, Jayna loves our land of four seasons and 10,000 lakes. “No other state compares,” says Jayna.
Jayna is passionate about helping young girls develop self-esteem, which is why she continues to mentor “little” Brianna. The two met as part of Big Brothers Big Sisters when Brianna was just 13. She’s now 22! Jayna also volunteers each quarter with her extended family at Feed My Starving Children.
