Born without legs, Jen’s biological parents left her at the
hospital. One would think she would be destined for a life of hardship. However, the hand of destiny brought her an
amazing adoptive family, who gave her one simple rule, “Never say the word, Can’t.”
As a child, Jen was obsessed with gymnastics and her idol was Olympic gold medalist Dominique Moceanu. In fact, watching Dominique on TV helped inspire Jen to begin
competing in gymnastics herself. Seemingly against all odds, Jen went on to compete against ablebodied athletes, and became a State Champion in power tumbling. As part of her
amazing story, and as twist of fate, Jen later learned that her childhood gymnastics idol was actually her biological sister.
Always challenging herself, Jen transitioned into an accomplished acrobat and aerialist.
As such, she travelled internationally with Britney Spears’ World Tour, and appeared as She headliner at the prestigious Palazzo hotel in Las Vegas, and the Shangri La hotel in Dubai.
