Tell Me A Story is simply that. Just a story of some lesson you learned, possibly the hard way. The funnier the story, or more bizarre the situation, the better. The lesson is that there's always a solution. Even to the problems you could never imagine.

Jenney began in manufacturing at age 6 working in her father’s Boulder county machine shop. After receiving her undergrad in Physics, she gained first-hand knowledge of the challenges of product design and how poor planning during the design phase can cause long-term and expensive impacts in production over the last 20 years. In 2007, she launched JSL Solutions primarily as a sourcing agency, but after seeing the biggest needs of her clients were not aligned with the supplier relationships she had, she pivoted her firm in 2016 to provide project-based operations services to help start-up and young companies plan for manufacturing throughout the design process. In 2019, JSL Solutions was acquired by Zebulon Solutions where Jenney serves as their Director of Operations, specializing in helping start-up companies build their operational business infrastructure for scalable growth.
