About

“IF YOU HAVE A JOB YOU LOVE, YOU’LL NEVER WORK A DAY IN YOUR LIFE.”

Jenny Wright is an entrepreneur, innovator, digital designer, and full stack & software developer based in Denver, Colorado. Growing up in Albuquerque, New Mexico, she had an avid interest in all things tech for as long as she can remember. However, her love for digital design piqued over 14 years ago when she discovered the power to make a positive impact through the art of creative storytelling. It wasn’t long before she decided to transform her childhood passion into a lifelong vocation.

Throughout the span of nearly a decade, Jenny has garnered extensive hands-on expertise in full stack development. Within that time, she has become well-versed in 8+ programming languages as well as advanced knowledge of WordPress and various custom content management systems.

Currently, Jenny proudly serves as a Software Developer, Designer, and Front End Developer of Engrain Inc., one of the most prominent technology companies in the real estate industry. At Engrain, she has played key roles in the design of 77 user interface designs and the development and maintenance of over 237 interactive websites and touch-enabled user experience projects.

When she’s not digital designing or software developing, Jenny Wright enjoys exploring new places and capturing beauty through a camera lens. Most importantly, she loves spending quality time with her husband and son.
