Recognized in a women’s restroom as a “local actress,” Jena hopes to break into regionals in 5 years. Her most consistent gig is playing the dozens monthly at the Bryant-Lake Bowl in the loosely improvised local favorite “Vilification Tennis.” She can also be found weekly co-hosting the Apropos of Nothing podcast with fellow vilifiers Matt and Salsa. Jena has written, directed, produced, performed, choreographed stage, sketch, film, improv, stand up, spoken word, and storytelling, dance, and combat. She’s an actor combatant at the MN Renaissance Festival, and has been known to belly dance and breath fire. In her spare time, she does publicity, design, and web programming.
