Ivana Jenkins (née) Vujić (Serbian Cyrillic: Ивана Вујић, born June 15, 1983), known by her stage name Ivy Jenkins is a Serbian-born Canadian bassist.[1] She played bass for the metal, all-woman band Kittie from October 2007 until March 2012. She began her career with Kittie by initially filling in for ailing bassist Trish Doan in late 2007, a period which found the band playing concerts in Central and South America.[2] Before she was in Kittie, Ivy played bass for the melodic hard rock band In The Wake from Toronto, Canada. In 2008, it was officially announced that Ivy was a full-time member of Kittie and in 2009 she appeared on their fifth studio CD, In The Black.[3] Ivy also wrote and recorded bass for Kittie's sixth album, I've Failed You, which was released on August 15, 2011. Jenkins plays a black Warwick Corvette 5 string bass guitar.[4]

Ivy is the co-owner of Umeus Cloth, a clothing line run by herself and Geoffrey Jenkins, the former vocalist of Gwen Stacy. On April 2, 2011 Ivy Vujic married Jenkins.

Ivy is currently playing bass guitar in a metal band called Speedgod, from Lansing, MI with her husband Geoff Jenkins on vocals. In June 2013 they released a 3 song compilation dubbed "the Summer 2013 Demos" which is available for free download on their official website.[5]
