A young NPR enthusiast, Calena grew up in Northern California with fantasies of a job in radio. After getting accepted to Southern Oregon University, she wandered into the JPR office and offered up her time as a volunteer. After a few weeks, Calena started working part time at the front desk. Now she juggles her academic and musical pursuits with her time at JPR.
Her customer service work at the station compliments her work on the weekends, when she travels to trade shows and festivals along the West Coast selling handmade goods. When she finds free time, she usually spends it playing music and enjoying the outdoors.
