Jenna York began serving as the Residential Director of Compass Rose Academy in 2022. 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, where they lived on campus.
Jenna holds a bachelor’s in psychology from Indiana Wesleyan University and a master’s in clinical mental health counseling from Grace College. Jenna feels that CRA has opened a door for her to work within a leadership role while allowing her to still work closely with adolescent girls who have experienced trauma or are dealing with depression, anxiety, and family struggles.
Jenna 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.
