Some have called it the armpit of America, but Jen likes to think of it as the big toenail of America, with a tasteful polish and pedicure, it can be beautiful. As a teen, Jen joined the American Ballet Theater traveling company. A stint with The Washington School of Ballet followed. But Jen chose to focus her attention on theater and ultimately chose to study Drama at NYU Tisch School of the Arts.

Jen starred off broadway in critically acclaimed performances of THE TEMPEST and MAD FOREST. After moving to LA, Judd Apatow tapped Jen to star in the pilot of his first TV series LOVE. Jen followed with a role in Pamela Adlon’s BETTER THINGS on FX and the critically acclaimed film THE EMISSARY with Margo Martindale. Jen can also be seen in national commercials for AT&T and Burger King as well as on her award winning sketch comedy channel, Gorgeous Grandpa Comedy, which won "Best Mockumentary" at the Austin Film Festival.
