Jennifer appeared in the 6th Street Playhouse production of Buddy in Santa Rosa, California (dir. DJ Salisbury), in early 2020, playing the roles of Mary Lou Sokoloff, Shirley, Peggy Sue, jingle singer, Clear Lake back-up vocals, and Keys 2. “I absolutely love doing this show and would love to do it again!” she says.  
She plays piano, and her work often takes her around the country.
