Jenna Tormanen

Filmmaker, Visual Storyteller, Social Media Extraordinaire

Jenna entered &yet’s heart straight through the caffeine.

Most of us met Jenna by way of The Local, a top-shelf coffee shop she owns with her husband, Michael. Seeing her contributions to their awesome marketing strategies, her work in her own filmmaking business, and her vision for our city, it didn’t take us too many cups of coffee to realize our community had a gem in Jenna and her capabilities. (Okay, it took a lot of cups of coffee, but only because the coffee was so good—not because it wasn’t immediately obvious how rad Jenna is.)

Wearing a lot of hats is a very &yet thing to do, and well, yes, Jenna has done that in her years with our team. So many hats. She’s played a dozen or so different roles during her time at &yet, always growing in her contribution.

Jenna’s tour de force was leading &yetConf—the most ambitious and chaotic effort our team has ever undertaken. With any conference, there are unknowns you can’t prepare for, and with &yetConf, it seemed like anything that could go wrong did go wrong. Jenna became an endless fount of creativity and a constant source of encouragement in the face of all kinds of unforeseeable challenges.

By sheer gritty determination, Jenna led our team in creating one of the most special events we’ve ever designed. Spencer Carney said about it: “&yetConf broke both my brain and my heart and then helped me to put them back together. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it.

That absolutely wouldn’t have happened without Jenna.

Today, Jenna is the leader for our product, Talky, where she is responsible for product strategy, marketing, customer support, and business development.

If you love Talky, give a thanks to Jenna—her leadership and versatility keeps it steadily moving forward. (And her coffee keeps the developers working on it fueled up!)

&yet is about people
