Jennifer was an All-American swimmer -- her specialty was the butterfly stroke -- at her hometown college of Franklin & Marshall, where she earned an accounting degree. A combination of beauty and brains, she's currently balancing her acting schedule with the MBA program at Pepperdine University in Malibu.
No stranger to competition or swimsuits, Jennifer was crowned both Miss New York and Miss Hawaiian Tropic in 1994. Her first credited film appearance was in the 1997 Howard Stern biopic "Private Parts," but her breakthrough role was sex kitten Grace Turner on "The Young and the Restless" (1999-04).
After a 2005 guest turn on "Veronica Mars," Jennifer joined the cast of "The Bold and the Beautiful" as fashion-model/model-daughter Donna Logan in 2006.
Jennifer entered her first beauty contest when she was a college exchange student in Spain. She came in first, winning a grand total of $300.
