- Jenkins, 52, a digital marketing and advertising consultant, cofounded a lifestyle website for women and co-authored two humor books on "midlife musings." She is also on the Conservative and Tax Revolt party lines in her first run for public office.
- She created the North Shore Business Network to help small business owners; organized fundraisers each year for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Diabetes Research Institute and Foundation; and launched car parades to mark residents’ milestones during the pandemic, including a World War II veteran‘s birthday and graduation for her daughter’s high school senior class.
- She received her finance degree from SUNY Old Westbury.
- Jenkins said the city needs new revenue streams and a five-year budget plan that would identify assets needing repair so they don’t end up like the city’s fishing pier, closed due to "severe disrepair."
- To create a robust downtown, she visualizes fuller use of parks - children’s events during the day, concerts for adults at night - and she would revive the cabaret-style dinner theater that once enhanced life in Glen Cove.
- She would focus on small businesses by employing her social media skills to grow their digital presence.
