Driven by her passion for women’s empowerment, entrepreneurship, and equity, Jensyn strives to create an ecosystem that supports the purpose-driven economy in her home state of Arkansas. She is Founder and CEO of Alivest, a company dedicated to helping others shift their money to align with their values-- through mindful spending, banking, and investing strategies, and recently launched the Arkansas Invest for Better Circle, a group focused on teaching and empowering women to take ownership of their finances and move toward impact investing. Jensyn believes, with more intentionality, we have the power to build stronger, more resilient communities.
In addition to her work and as a way to make a difference in her local community, Jensyn serves as the Director of Revenue for The Yarn, a local storytelling initiative that uses the power of story to amplify voices, build understanding, and create space for human connection.
