Field Instructor - WFR
Jena Honeyman says she was born to be an educator, adding it took her a while to determine where those teaching skills should be directed. What she discovered was that “wilderness and me are a perfect fit.”
She joined us here as an assistant instructor in 2012, and was soon promoted to the position of instructor. Prior to moving her classroom outdoors, Jena was a ninth-grade teacher at East Chapel Hill High School in North Carolina where she taught physical education and health.
Born in Washington State and raised in the Adirondack Mountains in New York, Jena received her Bachelor of Science degree in 2011, majoring in health and human sciences at the University of North Carolina Wilmington.
She has a professional certification in Wilderness First Responder (WFR) and is a member of the North Carolina Alliance for Athletics, Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (NCAAPHERD).
In her free time, Jena participates in acroyoga, playing with her dog Penny, sun worshipping, paddling and rotating her hips to a Hula Hoop.
