Jennifer is an American actress and was born in Medina, Ohio on May 3, 1973.
Following an avid interest in Theatre in high school and her induction into the International Thespian Society, she initially pursued a Theatre Arts major at The University of Akron in Akron, Ohio. Her goal was to be the "Dead Poets Society" teacher and to teach Theatre Arts and English Literature. Following some family turmoil, she was spurred to change majors and pursued a degree in Social Work. She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Social Work in 1996 and began working in the medical field. Despite changes in her career, she always kept a foot in Theatre. She has appeared in community theatre productions such as "Catherine" in Larry Shue's "The Foreigner". She later went on to work in local commercials and in the film "Underdogs". She has recently appeared in several independent films as well as more mainstream media.
She now primarily pursues acting and enjoys participating in productions filmed in her native Ohio.
