Jenna started her performing career at the tender age of 4 in the New Star Children’s Theatre Company in Ottawa, Ontario.

She trained and competed in Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, and Contemporary dance genres.

At Carleton University in Ottawa, Jenna was part of the dance team, and graduated with a Bachelor of Legal Studies. Knowing in her heart that she needed to pursue her path in film and TV, Jenna moved to Toronto where she continued to dance, and took acting classes at Lewis Baumander Acting Studio and Professional Actor’s Lab with Marvin Hinz. She also continued improving her dance form by working with choreographers, such as Leon Blackwood, Hollywood Jade, Scott Fordham, Shavar Blackwood, and other dance leaders.
