Staff Spotlight: Jenny Cross

June 17, 2019

We are pleased to welcome new Membership Director Jenny Cross to the Margaret Maddox Family YMCA. She has been a part of the YMCA for three-and-a-half years, having started her journey at the Green Hills Family YMCA as a yoga instructor while working part-time in the membership department. Jenny comes to us from the Maryland Farms Family YMCA, here she served as Membership Coordinator and also taught yoga.

When asked about joining the Maddox Y team, Jenny said, “I’m really enjoying getting to know the East Nashville community. In talking to the members, it just feels like family here. Everyone is so comfortable around each other, and I think the tight-knit community will make my job at the Margaret Maddox Y a lot of fun.”

Jenny wants to take her time getting to know the center and the community, so she isn’t teaching yoga just yet, but she hopes to down the road.

The St. Louis native moved to Nashville ten years ago to attend Belmont and stuck around. One of her biggest passions (aside from yoga) is travel, and she even spent a year in Australia on a working holiday visa. Jenny says, “I love traveling because I get to learn about different people, different cultures, and different cities. I just love learning about things that are new to me.”

She went on to say that it was difficult to pick a favorite destination because each has so much to offer, but when pressed to choose she selected Scotland as a favorite because of “family ancestry and the beautiful, rugged countryside.” She did add that eating haggis isn’t required but that it tasted far better than you would think from the description.

Help us welcome Jenny to the Margaret Maddox family and introduce yourself when you see her around the center.
