Jenny was diagnosed with the rare blood disorder aplastic anemia in high school. Soon after, she received a bone marrow transplant from her brother, Ryan, and was eventually able to return to playing the sport she loves—soccer. She continued her career at the University of Iowa and scored the winning goal in the 2020 Big Ten Tournament title game against Wisconsin before aplastic anemia put her on the sidelines again. In the midst of the challenges she faced, Jenny focused on her perseverance and determination to get back on the field with her teammates again. Jenny received another bone marrow transplant from Ryan and returned to the field for the Hawkeyes in 2022. Jenny’s experience with a rare diagnosis led her to pursue a career in medicine. She uses her platform to give a voice to those who don’t always feel like they have one otherwise.
