Jennifer hails from Homer Glen, IL, where she honed her dance skills at the Academy of Dance Arts under the guidance of esteemed instructors including Sherry Moray, Irina Starovoitova, Jennifer Grapes Croughan, and Ricky and Carrie Ruiz. In 2015, she graduated from the University of Iowa with a B.F.A in Dance, emphasizing choreography, alongside a Minor in Psychology and a Performing Arts Entrepreneurial Certificate.


During her time at the University of Iowa, Jennifer showcased her talent by premiering several of her own original pieces while also performing repertory by Deanna Carter, Eloy and Sarah Barragan, Kristin Marrs, Eleanor Goudie-Averill, Melinda Meyers, and Nicholas Leichter. She earned a coveted spot in the University of Iowa’s prestigious dance company, Dancers in Company, which toured throughout the midwest performing, conducting lecture demonstrations, and instructing youth in the art of dance and performance.


Jennifer's passion for dance led her to attend Milwaukee Ballet’s professional summer program as a scholarship recipient in 2013 and 2014, as well as Inaside Dance Chicago’s program in 2014, also on scholarship. In 2018, she was invited to train at Boston Conservatory under the mentorship of former Pilobolus Artistic Associate Jun Kuribayashi.


Jennifer's journey continued as a company member with Trifecta Dance Collective, Project606 Dance, and Ardent Dance Company, performing throughout the country. She extended her artistic horizons at Aerial Dance Chicago from 2018 to March 2020, exploring the captivating world of aerial dance. Since the fall of 2021, Jennifer has been a full company member with Aerial Dance Chicago, merging her classical training with the limitless possibilities of aerial dance.


Beyond performing, Jennifer is deeply dedicated to teaching and choreography, nurturing the growth of aspiring dancers of all ages, from youth to adults, throughout Chicago and its suburbs. She is thrilled to share her passion for dance with the Lakeview community as part of the Dance and Broadway team.
