She also graduated from Truman State University with a degree in Theatre Arts with a minor in Journalism. She had originally enrolled as a law student before changing her mind.
Jenna would have been a lot of things. For example, her love for animals made her consider becoming a veterinarian. When she moved to Los Angeles to gain a foothold in life, Jenna briefly took jobs as a phone psychic, receptionist, and administrative assistant. For three years, she worked at a car wash.
Her first appearance on screen was for a medical promotional video. Over time, after so much struggle, she finally made her film debut as a professional actress in Born Champion (1998).
