Jenny graduated from SCCS in 2010 and attended College of the Canyons and the University of Southern California. Jenny is currently 25 years old and is the proud owner of Sally Loo’s Wholesome Cafe in San Luis Obispo, CA.
“Attending SCCS from Kindergarten through twelfth grade had a huge role in becoming who I am today,” shared Jenny. “I was brought up in the Word of God every day and by teachers who truly cared about my personal walk with Christ. I remember growing the most in my relationship with the Lord during my senior year. Those high school years were pivotal for me when it came to my education and friendships, and shaping who I was to be in the future.”
Playing sports at SCCS taught Jenny that punctuality, hard work and determination would always pay off. “Some of my best high school memories were playing soccer for coach Wolf and then coach Gale,” said Jenny.
A year and a half ago, Jenny moved to the Central Coast because she wasn’t fond of her market research job and commute to Los Angeles. “I have always loved cooking and the joy of food and coffee and dreamed of opening my own restaurant or coffee shop,” shared Jenny. “There was something special about the idea of creating a space and menu for people to commune around that I adored. I took a leap of faith and gave up my salary for a cooking job at Sally Loo’s in October 2016. Not soon after, the old owners of Sally Loo’s decided to move out of state and were thankful to find someone to pass the baton to. I am proud to say, I became the second owner of Sally Loo’s! I never imagined my cooking job would lead to owning the place one day, but here I am! I can truly say, God is absolutely sovereign in all the details of our lives. I can’t take credit for anything that’s happened to get me here, but I thank God each and every day that my dream job came true at age 25! I manage twenty-five employees and am around thousands of customers a year that I can be a light to. What a privilege!”
Jenny’s favorite verse is Psalm 37:4 – “Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
Jenny currently attends Grace Central Coast and leads a group in Bible Study Fellowship AG.
“I wouldn’t be where I am without my family’s (mom, dad and the sibs) love and support,” shared Jenny.
