From a young age, Jenn was instilled with a love of storytelling and performing. A nocturnal insomniac, her bed became a late night sanctuary stocked with a flashlight, an expansive Nancy Drew collection, and re-enactments of her favorite strong female protagonists. After devouring her elementary school's library, Jenn moved onto films, tiptoeing her way downstairs, while her parents slept, to be mesmerized by underdogs like Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting and Hilary Swank in The Next Karate Kid. Around this time, she began to dance and act out her love of characters & their stories in school performances, and began writing and self-publishing short stories with the help of her school printer and a lot of duck tape.
Jenn's father passed when she was nine, galvanizing her strong drive for self-reliance and travel. For high school, Jenn received a scholarship to attend boarding school, and has enjoyed a relatively vagrant lifestyle ever since. Since graduating from North Carolina State University with honors, Jenn began re-focusing again on her love of performing - particularly acting. She was offered a scholarship to attend the NY Conservatory for Dramatic Arts, but chose to enroll in Meisner training at the William Esper Studio instead.
She has been nominated for Best Actress in the Secret Theatre's One Act Festival in 2013, and has had her work showcased at Cannes and the famous Chinese Theatre as part of HollyShorts Film Festival. Currently, Jenn splits her time between NYC and LA for work. Her specialty talents include the ability to say "hello" in 11 different languages, imitating accents, and cat purring noises.
