Jenny Byxbee is the Director of Children's Ministries for Round Hill Community Church. She has been with the church since September 2016, and oversees the nursery to fifth grade Children's Education program.

She feels strongly that we have as much to learn from our youngest members as we do from our eldest members.
When Jenny is not working with us at Round Hill, she is the Youth Services Bureau Administrator with the Town of Greenwich. She also cares deeply about many charities and groups in town and is one of the founding members of the Greenwich Sentinel foundation as well as a facilitator with the Junior League of Greenwich “Positively More” program.
