Growing up in Saratoga, CA, Jen was challenged by great roles like Nana the dog and the crocodile in “Peter Pan”. Obviously, she was meant for a life in comedy.
With dreams to one day perform outside of a mascot suit, she moved to Los Angeles at the age of 18 to attend Loyola Marymount University. There she majored in Theater Arts-Performance and started performing with LA Connection Comedy Theater, which led her to also study with one of the original Groundlings, the late great Kip King.
Now, she’s a prolific performer most recently starring in the short film “Single Parent Date Night”. She tried things out behind the camera as a co-creator and producer on “140 Characters”, a documentary about Twitter.
