Jenny Slaughter

@NewCity since 2011

Maker of things and fixer of problems, Jenny made her first website in sixth grade. She started freelancing in high school, and by college she was building her own CMS (though she didn’t say whether that ended up being a good idea).

She studied web design at Radford University, where she designed, developed, and directed the student-run online magazine. And before she came to NewCity, she worked as the sole web designer/developer at Ferrum College during a site redesign and implementation. For us, she puts that same crazy-awesome drive to good use taking ideas and making them go.

Tell her something is impossible, or difficult, or maybe even just questionable, and she will find a way to do it — better. She’s conquered custom JavaScript pieces, flexible filters, complex polygon and parallax templates, and other things that started out with “Hey, I wonder if…?”

Jenny likes to make things offline, too. Sewing, crafting, painting. Renovating and building in her old house. And also loud music, cheap beer, and coffee, though she enjoys those more when somebody else makes them.
