Jenny has the deepest Idaho roots of all us. She comes from generations of Boise natives, and brings a depth of knowledge about the Treasure Valley to our crew. Her connections to community schools, parks, events, all things Idaho, basically make her uniquely qualified to capture what makes our team and our listings stand out amongst the competition. We are unique to the industry to have her as our in-house marketer and professional photographer.
Jenny has a diverse professional history, but her passion always leads her back to photography & graphic design-work. With a degree in Criminal Justice, Jenny worked at the Ada County Courts for several years advocating for victims of misdemeanors and serious felonies. As a creative outlet to such an intense profession, she began focusing on photography in 2008, showcasing hotels & commercial properties. Realtors began noticing her work and requesting that she photograph their listings, allowing her passion to evolve into a full-time, successful career. Jenny has been photographing our homes since 2014, when Sheila recruited her after seeing another agent’s listing and saw the noticeable difference in the quality of her work. Her conscientiousness and attention to detail is only surpassed by her positive and accommodating work ethic. Our clients adore her as much as we do.
In addition to Jenny’s multi-faceted skills and education, she and her husband also opened what has become a highly successful Restaurant & Brewery in Northern Idaho, Westwood Brewing Co. This required her to take a two-year hiatus away from Boise to get it up and running. As an owner, Jenny was in charge of all of the marketing, advertising, and photography for her business. She also took that time to obtain a graphic design certification from North Idaho College, which has been tremendously helpful in the marketing realm. Fast forward a couple of years, and she is back to her Boise roots, working with Sheila Smith Real Estate Group, and could not be happier. We are beyond excited to not only have her back in the fold, but in addition, we get to utilize that much more of her talents, as our in-house marketer and photographer.
When Jenny is not busy photographing homes and finding new and fun ways to help market them, she is usually hanging out with her husband and three sons, her fur babies, and enjoying the beautiful Idaho outdoors, but only when it’s warm!
