After a childhood with the radio as her primary source of bedtime stories, she eventually moved onto such radio drama as The Hobbit, War of the Worlds and The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (which she credits for getting her through her A-level Art with moderate sanity intact and aspires to emulate one day).
Jenny eventually moved to Reading to study English, Film and Theatre where radio remained a good friend, eventually inspiring her to try out for the local student radio station, Junction 11. Keen to educate her fellow students on the power of emotive music, she produced and hosted her own show based around soundtracks from film, television and games making her solely responsible for The Imperial March from Star Wars to be blared out throughout the union when the Chancellor popped in for a visit (she insists this was not intentional). Her efforts earned her 3rd place in ‘Best Female Presenter’ award for that year.
Eventually graduating in 2009 Jenny spent the year working and collecting life experiences, becoming hooked to Radio 4 comedy in the process. Eventually after a year, Jenny decided to bite the bullet and try to get a career in something she truly cared about and would be proud to be a part of.
Jenny therefore rewarded radio for its unwavering loyalty by turning it from a friendly voice in the background to the main focus of her creativity and focus. Since then Jenny has failed to understand why she didn’t make the leap sooner, finding overwhelming fulfilment and an unnatural amount of joy in the blood, sweat and tears that goes into putting together the perfect radio programme.
When she is not working, she enjoys playing video games, kayaking and figuring out how to successfully turn graphic novels into radio programmes.
