Jen’s experience in the entertainment industry started when her 5 year old daughter said she wanted to be on television. Nine years later, the knowledge she has gained along her daughter’s journey can help other parents navigate the in’s and out’s of a competitive business which is lacking in mentors and often unpredictable. Jen’s daughter has worked in Boston, NY and Los Angeles while successfully balancing her academics and her career. Jen has learned that the parent of a working actor plays a very unique role and can enhance or destroy a child’s career. She is passionate about educating others through the process and starting them off on the right foot. Jen will help you avoid costly mistakes and share “tricks of the trade” to ensure a positive experience for your child. You will leave this seminar with a packet of information to get you and your child started in the world of show business!
