Forrest Jenkins



Forrest is a former practicing attorney with a juris doctor and a bachelor’s of business administration in marketing, both from the University of Mississippi. Prior to working at ProMatura, she worked as the staff attorney for the Housing Clinic at the University of Mississippi School of Law, and before that as an associate attorney in private practice at Freeland & Freeland, Lawyers. 

Her law practice included significant real property and housing work–clearing titles, wills and estates, landlord and tenant, the Fair Housing Act, bankruptcy adversary proceedings, and major neighborhood infrastructure improvements through a class action settlement in the Mississippi Delta. She has extensive experience in legal and public records research, contract interpretation and litigation, and complex writing projects. Forrest also serves on the board of LOU-HOME, Inc., an Oxford, Mississippi, nonprofit dedicated to advocacy for and development of affordable homes, particularly for first-time home buyers, in the Oxford-Lafayette-University community. Forrest brings strong analytical and language skills to the writing and editing processes for ProMatura’s feasibility reports, and depth of experience in researching planning and development.

In addition to her work at ProMatura, Forrest is an RYT 200-hour certified yoga instructor with multiple group classes and private clients each week. She leads ProMatura’s weekly mindfulness meditation group, and maintains a blog about her mindfulness practices and personal wellness. She loves the outdoors, and she keeps a garden; grows herbs, aloes, and bonsai; and rides horses in her spare time.
