Jenny Gardner
Director, Life Science + Project Development Services for JLL
As Director, Life Science + Project Development Services for JLL, Jenny acts as a liaison between the consulting and project management functions of the company. Within the consulting group, Jenny provides guidance and strategic advice to investors and developers via feasibility studies and repositioning strategies.  Jenny leads transition efforts for investors/developers from strategic planning to product delivery with a team of cost and project management professionals. Jenny also leads the life science delivery team who provides services for occupiers and tenants completing new build and/or renovation work. 
 
After earning a public relations degree from the University of Tennessee, Jenny moved to San Diego, California and began her career in 2007 with a growing life science developer.  Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Inc. acquired this developer in 2010, providing Jenny with an opportunity to become a senior project manager.
 
After departing AREE in 2018, Jenny spent three years working for Unibail Rodamco Westfield as a Director of Retail Delivery actively managing a team of professionals responsible for preparation and delivery of 1.2m SF of luxury retail space at the University Town Center in San Diego. She recently relocated to the UK with her family of four in January 2021, and cannot imagine a better place than JLL to create opportunity and a meaningful impact on the future of life science real estate.
