Jenkins has nearly 20 years of experience designing, implementing and measuring corporate social responsibility programs. Prior to joining HMC, she founded and was CEO of SBJ Consulting, and led the philanthropy efforts for Sodexo, a leading food service and facilities management company, creating targeted and impactful social responsibility programs.
