Jen started dancing at the age of four, with Sharon Howells School of Ballet. She went on to train in classical ballet at the New Zealand School of Dance and the International Ballet Academy.
She discovered a love for musical theatre when she made her Showbiz Christchurch debut in the 2005 production of WestEnd to Broadway III at age 19. Since then she has performed in: Disney's Beauty and the Beast, CATS, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, The Phantom of the Opera, Monty Python’s Spamalot, Mamma Mia!, Hairspray, Evita, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Sister Act and Wicked.
Her dancing has taken her all around the world and she has performed as part of the Pineapple Studios Cheerleading Squad at international motorsports and cricketing events. On her return to Christchurch in 2010 she joined the The Entertainment Company and performed at Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park numerous times, The Body Festival, Classical Sparks and many corporate events.
During the day Jen works for Southern Hospitality Ltd and is also a freelance dance teacher.
