Jenna Freeman started working at Global in May 2012 as the weekend news reporter in Edmonton before returning to Calgary to work in her hometown.
Jenna grew up in Calgary and when she stopped teaching dance, decided to focus on her second favorite activity, writing.
She graduated from Mount Royal University with her Broadcasting diploma before taking off to the Peace Country, where she began her news career reporting for radio.
After anchoring and reporting in BC and Saskatchewan, she made her return to Alberta in 2011 to work in the capital city.
Working in Edmonton gave Jenna the opportunity to cover an array of stories in and around the region and provincial politics.
When the opportunity arose to return to the city she grew up in and loves, Jenna jumped at the chance to report in Calgary.
When not in the newsroom Jenna can be found hanging with her husband and son, reluctantly running (what some might define as a fast walk) or at the local coffee shop.
