Jenn has been a production manager and stage manager in DC since moving to the area in 2004. She serves as the Production Manager for UMD’s School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies. Previously, Jenn was the General & Production Manager for Imagination Stage, where she was provided the opportunity to spearhead many unique projects. Those projects include the successful planning and execution of an expansion into DC that began with a partnership with The National Theater in 2014, as well as producing and stage managing a tour of Inside Out as part of the 25th ASSITEJ International Summer Festival in South Korea in 2017.
