Hailing from North Carolina, Jenn moved to New York City just three days after graduating from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. She has since amounted an impressive resume with roles in shows such as “Army Wives,” “Louie,” “Phil Spector,” “Justified” and a lead role on FX’s comedy “Saint George” playing George Lopez’ wife. If you ask Jenn though, it took her a while to find her groove in Hollywood – she was still selling pizzas in Central Park while filming “Justified.” Her theatre highlights include appearing on Broadway in the American premiere of Tom Stoppard’s trilogy, “The Coast of Utopia” (which earned 11 Tony Awards) and numerous Off-Broadway productions including A.R. Burney’s “The Wayside Motor Inn” and reuniting with Tim Olyphant (“Justified”) this past year in “Hold On To Me Darling.”
She’s a favorite among fans and critics, and has been applauded by many for her work.
