Hometown: Los Alamitos, Calif.  Birthday: July 31 Bio: Jenna Chandler is the editor of Santa Monica Patch (read her introduction to the site here). She studied journalism at Chapman University, where she was editor-in-chief of the student newspaper, The Panther, and interned in the newsroom at the Orange County Register and NBC News Los Angeles. In 2008, she was distinguished as the Register's Outstanding Student Journalist of the Year.  Jenna joined Patch in October 2010 as the editor of San Juan Capistrano Patch after covering crime and government at the Porterville Recorder in California's Central Valley. There she built a portfolio of stories that had resounding effects in the community, including a series that forced the City Council to reallocate thousands of dollars in misspent funds, and a weeklong report on public-sector salaries that led to the resignation of a city manager.   When she's not working, you'll find Jenna perusing record stores for Neil Young vinyl, eating pizza and hiking.
