Meet our Team


Kassy Keen,

Prior to coming to the Center for Student Wellness (CSW) I worked with the Utah College Advising Corps and then as an academic advisor. I’ve always been interested in health and wellness and in 2012 graduated with a Master of Public Health from the University of Utah. Through the CSW I hope to encourage our community of students to lead healthier lives in all dimensions of wellness. In my free time I love reading and watching movies.


Jenna Templeton,
MS, Health Promotion & Education
Health Educator

After graduating from Virginia Tech, I moved to SLC and spent 5 years as a research scientist in the nutritional industry. My experience in that field taught me that nutrition is just one facet of wellness, the rest of which cannot be ignored. To learn more about wellness, I decided to continue my education and change career paths. In 2016, I received a master’s degree in Health Promotion and Education from the U. Going to school while working full-time taught me that balance is the key to maintaining a healthy (and sane) lifestyle! This is my hope for students at the U: that they may excel academically while successfully balancing all of life’s pleasures and demands. In my spare time I enjoy baking (and eating) sourdough, live music, and just about any activity in the mountains.


Maya Jolley,
BS, Community Health
Health Educator 

I spent the majority of my life in the Pacific Northwest and recently returned to my Utah roots after graduating from Western Washington University (WWU) where I received my B.S. in Community Health. During my time in Washington I worked as a Health Educator with Planned Parenthood and WWU Prevention and Wellness Services. As a recent graduate I understand the challenges in maintaining a healthy lifestyle while in school, and I am dedicated to helping students discover how they connect with wellness – and how we can all achieve and enjoy our highest quality of life! In my free time I enjoy evening walks, cooking monster-burritos with my roomie, and enjoying the food, culture, and outdoor wonders of SLC.



Jodi Petersen,
B.S. Psychology
Sexual Assault Support Advocate

I spent eight years with the West Valley City Prosecutor’s office as their Court Advocate. During this time I became very passionate about crimes directly affecting women, in particular sexual assault. I wanted to become more involved with these cases so I joined the Mobile Response Crisis Team for the Salt Lake City Police Department and was with them for four years.  For the past two years I have worked for the Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault as their Sexual Assault Training and Services Coordinator. In my free time I love spending time with my dogs and reading.


Darrah Jones,
B.S. Political Science
Sexual Assault Support Advocate 

I moved to Cedar City, Utah from Oakland metropolitan area, CA in 2009. There, I attended Southern Utah University where I graduated with a degree in Political Science. Following my graduation, I worked at a treatment center for young women with trauma history, then as a victim advocate/youth case manager at a domestic violence shelter. I hope to use my advocacy experience and passion regarding gender-based violence prevention to make the University of Utah a safe, survivor-friendly environment for all. In my free time, I like to spend time out on the town, getting to know the people and places in Salt Lake City.


Danny James,
Masters of Exercise Physiology (Emphasis in Wellness Coaching), Expected 2017
Wellness Coach

I am a native of the beautiful state of Utah and currently a second year graduate student in the Coaching Wellness program at the University of Utah. Before coming to the Center for Student Wellness, I was a personal trainer, which helped me develop a passion to inspire individuals to lead healthier lives. This passion has driven me to further develop my skills as a wellness coach and help others through several different modalities. Throughout this next year at the Center for Student Wellness, I hope to empower individuals to live healthier through behavior change and improved motivation.  In my free time I enjoy playing rugby, spending time outdoors, exercising, and going on new adventures with my wife and two-year-old daughter.

Before I moved to Salt Lake City, I lived in Singapore for 15 years. I'm currently majoring in health promotion and education, and I'm passionate about a variety of health related topics, especially those that surround college students such as sex education and mental health. I hope to one day use my experience at CSW to work in a public health sector, improving health accessibility and education for the community.

I am currently in the Architecture program as well as minoring in both Urban Ecology and Design. I am passionate about design and the built environment and the many ways social justice and sustainability can influence and serve marginalized communities.  In my free time, I like to explore cities, nature, and food places, work on personal art and design projects, and spend time with family, friends, and my dog.
