In addition, she has toured China in The Sound of Music (Sr. Berthe, u/s Mother Abbess), as well as having toured nationally in Thoroughly Modern Millie (Miss Flannery, u/s Mrs. Meers). Most recently, she was seen on the national tour of the Broadway hit musical Wicked, as the Midwife and as understudy to the role of Madame Morrible. Jenn has performed in two one-woman-shows in Manhattan at The Duplex and The Laurie Beechman Theatre, as well as many cabarets, readings, and concerts in venues such as Birdland and New World Stages.
Jenn currently resides in Hamilton with her husband, Johnathan, her son, Patrick, and is ecstatic to welcome baby #2 this January. A very special thanks to her loving family, and to Mr. Sinkleris, who gave her the opportunities and inspiration needed to follow her dreams.
