Jenna Ramsey has served as a special education professional for the last 20 years.  She graduated from Elon University in 2001 with a Batchelor's of Arts in Special Education and Elementary Education and worked as a special education resource teacher at the elementary level for the first 5 years of career in Alamance County and Wake County.  Jenna started working as a Special Education Coordinating Teacher at the elementary and preschool levels.  She received her Masters of School Administration in 2012 from Western Carolina University and started serving in her role as the Senior Administrator for Preschool Special Education Programs in Wake County Public Schools.  She has received several recognitions of her work including Teacher of the Year for Brooks Musuems Magnet School (2005), Support Staff of the Year for the Autism Society of Wake County (2013), and Employee Excellence award for the Wake County Board of Education (2017).  Jenna has served as co-chair of the Wake LICC since 2019.  

In addition to her professional roles, Jenna has an 8-year-old daughter, A'leeah, and was blessed to have 13 amazing years as a mother to her son PJ, both of whom have unique learning and medical needs.  Her role as a parent has provided her opportunities to dwell in communities with those caring for and loving individuals with complex medical needs, developmental disabilities, and those experiencing palliative care, hospice, foster care and adoption.  Her experiences have formed her perspectives and her work with families, as she strives to display actions and words that confirm, affirm, and align with a parent's voice in their child's educational planning and life path.
