Jen is originally from Columbus, OH, but she`s spent most of her adult life here in the Tri-State. She graduated Cum Laude from Miami University with a BS in Communication and a BA in Spanish. Her first job out of college was as an intern with WOXY-FM/97X radio. She would go on from there to spend several years in the music industry as a field marketing rep for Sony Music. She is a huge fan of theater and acting, and that love for the arts is what drew her to performing. She began acting in high school and then in local commercials and on area stages.
Jen landed her first television job as co-host of Cinema 64 with Bob Herzog. She was then reunited with Bob when she made the switch to Local 12 in October of 2006. They now work together on Good Morning Cincinnati.
When Jen is not on the air, she continues to perform on-stage and behind the scenes as a playwright. Her 2007 play "Mad" received a CEA nomination for Best Alternative Show. She also loves music and attending concerts. Jen loves to travel, ride horses and enjoys watching sports like football. Always happy to donate her time to local organizations, she is particularly passionate about those that promote mental health and animal welfare.
Jen and her husband welcomed their first child in June of 2014.
