Born in Kansas City, MO, Jennie was raised in a family deeply rooted in the performing arts. Some of her first steps were during dress rehearsals for the community plays her parents directed in Jefferson City, MO but her onstage debut was at the age of 4 years old in Man Who Came to Dinner. Jennie’s family tree is so ripe with vaudevillians, vocalists, musicians, and performers that singing was more than the activity they all shared: it was the language.
This is her third year as an assistant and she adores working with her new family in music: the Studio staff, parents, and kids. She continues performing with her sisters for weddings and private functions, participating in church productions, and every holiday season looks forward to the reemergence of the BarlowGirl Christmas album where she added backing vocals and harmonies. Jennie is a mother to Jillian (11) and Joseph (13) Bryan and wife to Jason Bryan. While she juggles family, work at JCI Industries, she finds great pleasure in her work at The Studio watching the young artists grow as performers and people.
