Tennent said she suffered a knot on her head but is otherwise OK.
She said the deer hit the building, got up and ran through some nearby apartment complexes and back into the woods.
Tennent said she was most concerned with being able to get to work on time.
“How many people in a public place gets attacked by a deer? I’m just thankful it jumped over me,” Tennent said.
