Jenna Patchen Metzger, J.D.
“I am driven by building relationships with people and connecting to my community. At A Wider Circle, I work with incredible people every day to bring the community together as a whole in order to raise up those with the greatest need.”
Prior to joining A Wider Circle, Jenna worked as a family law attorney in downtown Chicago, IL where she advocated on behalf of children involved in contested custody cases. After returning home to the D.C. area, Jenna joined A Wider Circle so she could serve those in need in a more sustaining, personalized and results-oriented way. Jenna now uses her legal experience and knowledge of the difficulties faced by those we serve to communicate the development side of A Wider Circle’s work to partners who want to support our programs.
Jenna received her law degree from DePaul University College of Law and her undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Maryland.
