Jen grew up in Simi Valley, singing and dancing both regionally and on screen. While she dreamt of going to Broadway, her body had other ideas, landing her with a decade of ankle operations and lots of recovery. But every storm has its rainbow, and it's in Simi where she met the love of her life, Chris, and has 2 gorgeous daughters - Leiana (10) and Kalea (8).

And don't worry, she still sings in her car, so if you pull up next to her at a light, you might catch a melody or two.
