Jenna Ingram

What is your role at UWSM?

I support annual grant processes including applications, trainings, external communications, and reporting, as well as Thrive2027 partner engagement to move partners meaningfully along the Thrive2027 continuum.

What’s your favorite work moment so far?

My favorite work moment is more of a constant realization and confirmation. I’m not a local Mainer and I am so grateful that I have been able to find the southern Maine community through my work and because of my work. I think everyone knows how beautiful Maine’s natural landscape is, but the people here are genuine and hardworking and caring. Everyone is a neighbor and people really want to help each other.

How do you take your coffee?

Cold brew with almond milk and a little maple syrup

What’s your favorite book?

I’m a true Romantic, in the literature/arts sense, so it’s a toss up between Frankenstein and Dracula

What’s on your bucket list?

I want to buy a house and live in Maine forever so that is top of the list!
