Jen grew up in Portland, Oregon and has been dancing since she was 4. Jen was a member of Westside Dance Academy’s Performing Company (Tigard, Oregon), and this is where her love of tap began. Throughout high school, Jen continued dancing in musicals and acted as dance captain. Upon graduation, Jen left the West Coast to attend college at Marquette University. During her time in Milwaukee, Jen was fortunate enough to be able to continue dancing while pursuing her degrees in Public Relations and Writing-Intensive English. During college, Jen performed and choreographed for Dance Inc, the university’s first student-run dance organization. After college, Jen auditioned and was accepted to perform with Danceworks on Tap, an adult all-female tap ensemble. Jen is thrilled to join Premiere’s team and is committed to providing a passionate, dedicated, and fun environment for students.
