When Jenn saw ‘Splash’ as a little girl, her obsession with mermaids increased, and her father made her first mermaid tail, so she could be a mermaid for Halloween or any day after school. Her mother was a competitive swimmer both in high school and at Loyola Marymount College, so when Jenn was born, it was important to both her parents that she learned to swim. Jenn literally swam before she walked and would often scare her parents friends by sitting at the bottom of the pool for long periods of time working on how long she could hold her breath.
Jenn is a true California native, born and raised partly in Los Angeles and in Carmel with a house walking distance to the beach. Having both parents and grandmother in the entertainment industry, Jen became a 3rd generation of creativity and imagination. With professionalism instilled in her very early, she received her SAG eligibility at the young age of 6 months for the cult favorite ‘Knightriders’.
Acting roles soon followed on ‘The O.C.’ , Sabrina, the Teenage Witch and a recurring on Lifetime’s ‘The Division’ with a then unknown Jon Hamm. She also was Drew Barrymore’s photo double for the ‘Charlie’s Angels’ movie and swim double for Gail O’ Grady in a Lifetime movie. Recently, she is seen as a stunt actress on ‘Southland’, Bones, and was nominated for the "Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture" SAG Award for her work in "The Amazing Spiderman".
Due to her connection in the stunt world, she landed a job as the mermaid consultant for the CW pilot, ‘Jane the Virgin' through their stunt coordinator by direct referral. After spending a day in the water training actress Gina Rodriguez, Gina actually wears Jenn's tail in the episode! From big screen to your next event, Siren Jenn is a talent not to miss.
