Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, Jenna’s early years were spent developing a love of dance, theatre, and dry heat. She found circus arts after completing a BA in Gender Studies and an MA in Human Rights. Circus offered a new and exciting creative outlet for personal expression. Her mixed background in academia, activism, and movement draws her into spaces where performance arts and politics intersect. She is a performer for the Boston Circus Guild, and has graced stages in Montreal, San Francisco, New York, and of course, Brattleboro, VT. She is a member of the 2019 inaugural graduate class of the 3 year Pro-Track Program at the New England Center for Circus Arts, and was thrilled to move into a coaching role for the Pro-Track Program at NECCA in 2020.
