Jenna Markowitz

Vice President of Strategic Growth & Senior Counsel

Jenna enjoys being a thought partner and problem solver for those working to create a more equitable and inclusive world. She began her career in corporate law, advising public companies, private equity firms and financial institutions on complex business transactions, but eventually decided to focus on nonprofit work to pursue her passion for helping others make a positive social impact.

Jenna was Vice President of Strategic Growth for the Build Up Advisory Group and Senior Counsel for The Campbell Law Firm until transitioning to an Engagement Advisor role. Before joining the Build Up Companies, Jenna was the Legal & Business Affairs Director at Seeds of Peace, an international nonprofit organization whose mission is to inspire and cultivate new generations of global leaders in communities divided by conflict.

Jenna’s background as both a corporate attorney and in-house counsel for a public charity, combined with her experience leading client engagements for Build Up and TCLF, have given her a wide range of expertise that she can leverage to advance the missions of her clients and help them accomplish their objectives.

Jenna holds a B.A. in Public Policy from Duke University and a J.D. from Columbia Law School.

In her free time, Jenna enjoys traveling, cooking, ballet and enjoying time with her husband and two kids in Connecticut.
