Director of Communications Jenna Chandler

Jenna serves as CCA’s Director of Communications.

Growing up on a horse ranch in Lincoln, CA, Jenna developed a love for watching things grow, from alfalfa to livestock. She attended the UC Davis College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, majoring in Animal Science and minoring in English. While at UC Davis, she worked at the UC Davis Dairy in milk quality and herd management. She also spent time working at the UC Davis Hopkins Avian Facility, specializing in layers and broilers.

In 2012, she began work for the California State Assembly, serving both the 33rd and 6th Assembly Districts in various capacities.

Chandler said. “I look forward to pairing my passion and background in agriculture and my experience working with members of the legislature to help bridge the communications gap between the cattle industry and public policy.”

Chandler’s responsibilities include writing for CCA's magazine, California Cattleman, overseeing other CCA publications such as Legislative Bulletin and Hot Irons and various other communications outreach for both membership and the legislature . She also assists with the Foothill Abortion vaccine trial.
