When Jen was 18 her grandmother took her to see Jekyll and Hyde on Broadway. Linda Eder
was the leading lady, a role for which she won the Theatre World Award for Best
Actress in a Musical. Jen was mesmerized, and knew at that moment she wanted to
be a singer for the rest of her life. During her senior year of high school she
attained a perfect score at the NYSSMA (New York State School Music Association)
competition and was awarded a scholarship to study music. Jen decided to major
in voice. She is classically trained, but loves all genres of music from jazz
A lot has happened since then. Jen's performing credits include: the lead role of Eva Peron in Evita, Anita in West Side Story, a run in Smokey Joe’s Café and Why Oh Why Can’t I, an original Judy Garland musical, a two-year stint in Swing! as Ann, and again in a lead role as Esther in Meet Me In St. Louis (the role that Judy Garland had in the 1944 musical movie).
Jen sang on Broadway in the TRU (Theater Resources Unlimited) Celebrity Benefit at the John Houseman Theater in New York City. Ironically, it also happened to star Robert Cuccioli, who was the lead in Jen's seminal Broadway favorite, Jekyll and Hyde.
In her spare time Jen enjoys being on the 100 acre farm where she lives. She can often be found fishing, grooming horses, or taking long walks up the winding roads of the charming small town she calls home.
Jen now uses her talent to entertain at private events, children’s parties, singing at select wineries, and special engagements. She also gives private voice lessons and musical theatre coaching.
