ABOUT US

JENNA PARKER

Jenna grew up outside of Boston, MA and attended Harvard University where she earned a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. A member of both the swim and track teams at Harvard, she found a natural transition to a professional career as a triathlete. As a member of the US National Team, she finished 2nd at the 2009 US National Championships and represented the US at the 2012 Olympic Trials. After 10 years competing professionally, she retired in 2013 to pursue a career as an actress.

 

While navigating the difficult transition out of sport, and being told to “write what you know,” Jenna became aware of the brain health epidemic in the sports world. Wanting to understand why, she started researching the topic, and from there the idea for IDENTITY was born. She hopes the series will help to end the stigma around brain health, push the large governing bodies to better support athletes both during and after their careers and change how we place value on ourselves and understand our own personal identity.
