Jennell was a competitive gymnast for 10 years as a youth. She then moved into the realm of competitive cheerleading where she worked as a coach and choreographer for several years. She attended Hawaii Pacific University on a full collegiate Dance scholarship where she studied International Economics and Spanish.
Jennell loves to travel and has visited/lived in over 15 different countries. Random fact about her is that she is actually a licensed stock broker. She loves investing and economics but would rather be at the studio than at a desk all day. She has been an AFAA certified group fitness instructor since the age of 18 teaching Zumba, strength training, and aerobic classes. She is also a certified USAG coach since the age of 16. She has worked as a professional dancer for many years and through that has been afforded a myriad of strange and wonderful experiences. You can catch her on the 2016 season premiere of American Crime!
