Jennie makes a point to take a real interest in each of her swimmers, celebrating their accomplishments not only in the water but on deck and in school.  When not coaching, Jennie enjoys family time, movies and music. Jennie and her husband live in Shenandoah, TX where they raised their four children, all of whom were swimmers (summer league, USA, high school and collegiate level). 


The RICE Aquatics Coaching Staff is excited to have Jennie as part of our family starting this Fall 2018.
