Compass Rose Academy is excited to welcome Jenna York as the new Residential Director!
Jenna began serving in her new role in March. Prior to Compass Rose, Jenna worked at Meridian Health Services as a therapist, LMHC, and clinical supervisor providing therapy to adolescents, young adults, and families with trauma history, depression, anxiety, behavioral concerns, and severe mental illness. Jenna’s passion for residential treatment began at a young age as her parents were houseparents at George Junior Republic, a residential facility in Gas City, IN, where they lived on campus.
“My career has been focused on working with adolescent girls who have experienced trauma or are dealing with depression, anxiety, and family struggles. I feel CRA has opened a door for me to work within a leadership role, but is also allowing me to still work closely with the population I thrive working with,” said Jenna.
Jenna holds a bachelor’s in psychology from Indiana Wesleyan University and a master’s in clinical mental health counseling from Grace College. She and her husband, Adam, have three children: Malachi, Madelyn and Lincoln. She enjoys having movie nights with her family, playing and coaching volleyball, and being outside.
