HELLO!

I'm Jen!

Actor, Business Strategist & Online Educator


 

I'm a multi-passionate entrepreneur who is a big nerd for building businesses... and having fun while doing it!

 

I spent over a decade as a professional entertainer, working on stages across the world, before turning my focus towards arts administration & management.

 

In 2019, I launched the first "Smart Taxes" book (the first of its kind in Canada), helping creative professionals navigate the business demands of a career in the arts.

 

Talking about taxes can be overwhelming and scary for many actors, so I broke it all down in "real people" language, with real-life examples and useful tools like worksheets, my fave apps, and an exclusive online resource page. 

 

This is the training I *WISH* I'd had in theatre school!

 

These days, I'd rather spend LESS time worrying about money and more time building a career I love- who's with me?!
