Hope Howell Jenne’

Controller

Hope grew up on a farm in Short Mountain, Tennessee, where she learned how to ride a horse before she could walk, and drive a tractor. She holds bachelor’s and master’s accounting degrees from MTSU. Before joining the Advent team, Hope worked in accounting in the pharmaceutical industry.

Hope is passionate about her profession because she loves meeting new people. At Advent, she is in charge of managing payroll, documenting all the transactions entering and leaving the company and ensuring all financial systems run smoothly.

In her free time, Hope enjoys volunteering; she currently serves as a mentor at the Boys and Girls Club and the president of the Junior League of Murfreesboro. She especially loves working with children, and for eight years volunteered as a preschool Sunday school teacher.

Hope is still an avid horseback rider, but so far she’s relied exclusively on her Highlander for the commute to Advent.
