Jena graduated from the University at Albany with a BA in Women’s Studies and Public Policy with an English minor in 2017.  She has recently completed research that interrogates how media portrayals of black women in the workforce misrepresent the realities of these women’s lives by failing to depict them as active resisters to racism and sexism in the workplace. She is currently interested in conducting research on the links between health policy and black women’s poor birth outcomes, including low birth weight, high infant mortality, and premature birth.
