Jena has been a member of the Brookings Community since 2007, and you might know her sister, Kari Westlund! She earned an AAS Degree in Business Administration from Southeast Technical Institute, and then spent 9 years working for Dacotah Bank, and 2 years working for Innovation Village Property Management.
In 2017 she joined Kari at Best Choice, and she’s looking forward to continue providing Brookings with a fun and reliable Real Estate experience. Whether you're buying or selling, she’s here to help! (Plus her and Kari sound so much alike, you may not even notice a difference!)
She is married to Aaron Werpy, and together they have a son named Walker.

1. What’s your favorite part about your being a REALTOR?
Meeting new people and guiding them through the home buying and/or selling process!
It’s also fun to get an opportunity to view all different types of homes.
2. How’d you meet your husband or a fun story about him?
We were setup! My sister, his boss….I delayed for a VERY LONG time because his Facebook profile was a picture of him with a mullet! I should have known right then what a FUN guy he is! I just wanted to get it over with so we met at Skinner’s one day in September and got married that exact same day 7 years later!
