Upon graduation from Cape Fear High School, she received the prestigious Teaching Fellows Scholarship and graduated from East Carolina University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance Education (K-12). She spent over 10 years teaching dance for Cumberland County Schools, where she brought tremendous growth to the dance program at Cape Fear High School by increasing enrollment to make it a full time position. Jenn started On Pointe Dance Center in the summer of 2014 where it began as a small one room studio with just a few students. As enrollment continued to grow Jenn made the decision in the summer of 2018 to move the studio from the original small Haymount location to a much larger three studio space in the Eutaw Shopping Center. In 2017, Jenn became a certified Acrobatic Arts teacher by completing their teacher training program to bring a safe progression based Acro syllabus to OPDC. Jenn is also a certified Progressing Ballet Technique teacher after completing their teacher training program in the spring of 2019. Recently during 2020, Jenn also completed another Acrobatic Arts certification which recognizes her as an official Acrobatic Arts Competition Adjudicator where she travels the east coast to judge for multiple competition companies during the weekends. Jenn has a true passion for teaching dance and enjoys being able to share her passion with her students!
