Here's Jenny's biography as she wrote it:
I was born August 15th, 1984. When I was three I started to take
ballet lessons. I continued with ballet until I was twelve. When I
was six, I started gymnastics. I was picked for the Mass Stars team
when I was eight. I quit gymnastics when I was nine, and I started to
skate. I was still doing ballet, and other activities such as piano
I began to really enjoy skating right away. I was skating for about
one time a week until I was nine and a half. Then, I got more serious
and started to compete. And I have continued seriously skating ever
Then, just last year I had to make a decision. My new coaches, Mary
and Evy Scotvold, live and their rink is in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
I live in Boston which is close to two hours away from Cape Cod. My
mom didn't want to drive that much every day, so we decided to have me
move out there. I had to move to a new school and give up ballet, which
was something that I was very reluctant to do since it was the sport
that I loved second best to skating. So this past year I have been
living in Cape Cod with a lady named Nancy Harkness.
I go home to see my family every weekend. It is kind of hard for
me...not being able to see my family like I used to. But I know that
it is for skating, and it is really worth it!
