She is originally from Stamford, CT and holds an undergraduate degree from Duke University. Jena graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Duke, where she majored in Women's Studies and U.S. History.

In recommending Jena for the scholarship, NIABA president Dino Mazzone said, "For a variety of reasons, Jena Rose Neuschler is my first choice. She is an outstanding woman ... and has displayed an intellectual curiosity and commitment to strong principles that are absolutely refreshing. She merits being recognized for her stellar academic and extracurricular achievements.”
