Jenny took up the position of Director of the Munnings Art Museum in 2013. The post was newly created by the Trustees in order to professionalise the museum's operations. Since that time Jenny and her team have instigated a programme of changing exhibitions, from the museum's large collection of artworks by Sir Alfred Munnings, catalogued and researched the previously dormant archive and begun a series of publications. They have also developed a growing and ever more popular series of workshops and events to inspire today's plein air and equestrian artists.

In 2019, under Jenny's leadership, the Munnings Art Museum worked with the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa to bring forty of Sir Alfred Munnings First World War paintings to the United Kingdom. This was the first time that these paintings had been exhibited all together in the UK in a hundred years. The paintings were shown in London and then at the Munnings Art Museum, doubling visitors numbers, and making 2019 the most successful year in the museum's six-decade history.

Jenny completed an Art Foundation at Loughborough College of Art and gained a BA (Hons) in Cultural Studies from the Norwich Institute of Art and Design (now Norwich University of the Arts). Her postgraduate qualification from Leicester University is in Museum Studies.

Before taking up her role at the Munnings Art Museum Jenny worked at several museums in the East Midlands and spent ten years at Brighton Pavilion and Museums working with curatorial and conservation teams on a number of new projects funded by the Renaissance in the Regions programme.
