She's Writer, Director, and Producer of Miss Representationwhere she brought together some of America’s most influential women in politics, news, and entertainment to explore women’s under-representation in positions of power and influence and challenges the limited and often disparaging portrayal of women in the media.

She includes stories from teenage girls and interviews with politicians, journalists, academics, and activists like Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, and Gloria Steinem. The film received the Sonoma Film Festival Audience Award and The White House Project Emerging Artist Award, and you can find all screenings here. She's also planning screenings at the White House.

Jennifer has an MBA from Stanford Business School, and her past experience includes working with Conservation International where her primary focus was providing micro-enterprise opportunities to women, and then she moved to LA to perform in various films and TV shows.
