Jenna Deidel

Director of Community Engagement

Jenna joined the Davis Phinney Foundation team in the fall of 2017. Much of her eclectic career has been spent creating and facilitating educational, inspiring, and sometimes surprising experiences for diverse communities in classrooms, museums, theatres, orchestra halls, and more. She is passionate about connecting individuals with experiences that improve and transform their lives, and believes deeply in the power of relationships and community to address complex issues and create positive change.

In 2020, Jenna launched the Davis Phinney Foundation’s Health Disparities and Parkinson’s webinar series and helped to form the Foundation’s first Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access (IDEA) advisory board. In 2021, she and her team launched the Healthy Parkinson’s Communities™ initiative to help make the places where we live, work, and play more inclusive and supportive for those living with Parkinson’s.

When she’s not working alongside her team and the incredible Parkinson’s community, you can find Jenna cooking, gardening, going to hot yoga, and spending time with her husband and their rescue dog Maybelle.
