A native of the Kansas City area, Jenna began her journey in the performing arts at a very early age. Despite her love of performing, Jenna was still convinced she wanted to be a kindergarten teacher. It was until the end of her junior year of high school that she decided to pursue musical theatre as a career. Jenna landed in Nashville, TN at Belmont University, where her skills and love of the craft grew exponentially.
Jenna graduated from Belmont University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre with a minor in Dance. Since leaving "Music City", she has relocated to New York City. She recently returned to NYC after playing the role of Maria in West Side Story at Asolo Repertory Theatre in Sarasota, FL. Jenna will be reprising her role as Maria in the West Side Story Centennial World Tour '16/'17, opening in Bremen, Germany in November.
