Southern Regional Manager - Jenna Johnson

Southern Regional Store Manager, Jenna, has worked at Big Earth since 2019 and has served in various roles, including Customer Service Representative, Assistant Manager, and Store Manager.

Jenna says her favorite thing about working at Big Earth is the opportunity to gain new knowledge each and every day. “Being teachable is invaluable. Working at Big Earth has provided an opportunity to learn more than I could ever imagine about plants, pavers, rocks, fertilizer, irrigation, sod and more. I have learned so much here that any kind of schooling could never teach me. Gaining knowledge and experience on products is important to make sure customers get what they need.” During her time with Big Earth, Jenna has developed a wealth of applicable knowledge for the landscape supply industry, the inner workings of a landscape supplier, and just how much it takes to run a landscape supply store. Jenna is an asset to Big Earth Landscape Supply and works hard with the rest of the Big Earth Team to make Big Earth a success!

When she isn’t at the store, you can find Jenna with her family and dog, Tuna. Whether it be Super Mom to Tuna or Baker of the Year in the kitchen, Jenna is a strong woman of example and talent.
