Jensy earned her undergraduate and graduate degrees in accounting from The University of Texas at Austin (Hook 'Em!). Her professional journey has been a bit non-traditional as she spent time in business risk consulting and internal audit when she stumbled upon a very interesting career – forensic accounting and fraud investigations – and loves it! Jensy is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) and Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS) and is currently the Director of Internal Fraud for Capital One’s Financial Services division in Plano.
One of Jensy’s passions is teaching and she’s had the opportunity to be both an adjunct and full-time professor at UT Dallas (Go Comets!). She also has a passion for equipping and empowering young women (which is why she LOVES Polished!). She has been a formal (and informal) mentor to many, led book clubs and topical studies, and spoken on panels/events for a college campus ministry that she and her husband are avid supporters of.
Jensy is a native Texan, born and raised in Fort Worth - while she has never owned a pair of cowboy boots, she has always been an avid Dallas Cowboys fan! Jensy and her hubby of nine years, Chris, live in Frisco and have two little people they adore – Joshua and Hannah. She’s obsessed with a few food network shows, finding a steal of a deal (on anything!) and loves to entertain and host her family and friends.
