Jenny lives with her husband William and her daughter Delaney in State College, Pennsylvania.  She has worked as a free-lance Costume and Set Designer in New York City and at Regional and Summer Theatres across the United States.   Recently she has learned more about Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War than she ever thought she would need to for the production of Lincoln: Upon the Altar of Freedom. She served as the Assistant Costume Coordinator for the Radio City Christmas Spectacular and was affectionately referred to as “The Bear Girl” for her work on the Bear costumes worn in the show.  A few of the places she has worked include the WPA Theatre and the Duplex Cabaret in New York City, The Russian Ballet Theatre of Delaware, OperaDelaware,  Lincoln Midwest Ballet, Nebraska Repertory Theatre, Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble and Pennsylvania Center Stage.  She is currently serving as a Visiting Professor of Scenography for Bucknell University.  She has served on the faculty at Penn State University, and was a Visiting Professor of Costume Design at Bucknell University in 2008/9.  She has also taught and designed at University of Nebraska—Lincoln, Evansville University, and Manhattanville College.
