Born and raised in Arlington, Texas, Jennifer fell in love with performing at the cool age of 10 years old. Knowing she would have to leave home to really pursue her dreams, Jennifer left Arlington for Los Angeles to attend AMDA College & Conservatory of the Performing Arts, where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree.
As fate would have it, Jennifer and Tasheena met at school and a strong friendship and mutual love of arts developed. Through this journey, Jennifer began assisting Tasheena with her dream of creating the ultimate performance art show and the collective soon took off.
