Jenna Wrieden is the assistant coach for Hoka NAZ Elite. She joined their coaching staff in January of 2021 after a long and successful coaching career in the NCAA system. She has lived all over the country for her coaching career including Appalachian State, ZAP Fitness, her alma mater Arizona State University, High Pointe University, Queens University, and most recently the University of Louisville.
Jenna also ran at Arizona State University with Amy Cragg and Des Linden!
I loved hearing about her role at NAZ Elite, her journey to get there, and being a mom and a coach.
