    Jenica
    Director of Operations

    After over 20 years working for fortune 100 companies, Jenica did some soul searching and realized she desired more purpose driven work. Helping people and connecting with her community is something Jenica is extremely passionate about, so when an opportunity arose that perfectly married those two desires she found herself overflowing with excitement and gratitude to start this new journey!

    Jenica has two children, both are in college. Her son Carter attends Florida Institute of Technology where he studies Aerospace engineering and plays on the Lacrosse team. Her daughter Camryn attends University of North Florida where she studies Psychology and is a sprinter on the track team. Jenica has always said, “being a mother is my greatest life accomplishment!”

    Jenica happily attends her 6am workout classes at CrossFit AZO 5-6 mornings a week. The sense of community she feels at AZO is something rare and is of great value to Jenica. She absolutely loves to travel to destinations where she can spend her days hiking in the mountains. She believes life is truly a gift so go out there and LIVE it!
