Jenelle completed two Bachelor of Arts degrees from George Fox University (Newberg, Oregon, USA) in History and Writing/Literature in 2002 (magna cum laude). She then worked for the Veterans Affairs in Portland, Oregon until 2005 and a clinical research organization in Denver, Colorado until 2007. Upon moving to the UK in 2007, she worked for the University of Kent where she also completed her master's degree in Methods of Social Research in 2011 (distinction). In 2011 she was awarded ESRC funding to undertake a PhD in Sociology at the University of Nottingham exploring the social process of personal change within a therapeutic community context. She was awarded the University of Nottingham Endowed Prize in 2014 for contributions to the postgraduate community and research. Since completing her doctorate, she currently works as a research fellow with CLAHRC EM and the Centre for Health Innovation, Leadership and Learning (CHILL). Her research project assess how the implementation of health technologies and educational interventions is conditioned by the emergence and sustained management of group unity, emotions and a shared sense of belonging amongst research, clinical and patient actors as they interact within newly formed communities of practice
