About Me

Daring, innocent, quirky, hipster, songbird Jennie hails from Southern California. Jennie has been a passionate storyteller since she told her sister fantastical stories growing up.  From a very young age she performed with children's singer Mary Rice Hopkins and had her first professional studio recording in a children's choir called Let the Children Praise Him. This led her to earn her BA in Theater from Azusa Pacific University before heading to New York City to pursue Broadway. These days that passion for storytelling can mean many things from singing and playing at open mic nights and weddings, picking up her guitar and writing her own songs, hosting jam sessions called "Jam and Toast"'s, devising original theatre with physical theatre companies.  She is a singer who has spent her life challenging herself to always be more, to reach out and grab what she wants and she certainly hasn't lost her drive amidst her growth.  Empathy and collaboration are two very important things to her.  If there are stars in her eyes she is grounded by her incredible New York community.
