Jenny Jen is skating her way across magazines, newspapers, television, and radio-- including Discovery’s The Learning Channel, Comcast SportsNet, and a variety of shows on FOX, NBC, ABC and CBS.
Basketball legend Dr. J (aka Julius Erving) and actor John Cusack are among her celebrity students. She also worked with 5-time Olympic Gold Medal speed skating champion Bonnie Blair.
Determined to make skating easy and fun for everyone, she started rhyming like Dr. Seuss and reasoning like Sir Isaac Newton. She raps her rhymes on skates to demonstrate. To share her instructional rhymes with the world, she formed a band, Jenny Jen and Taki76 (formerly Phat Sk8trax). They landed a top ten single of the year in the Village Voice with their debut track, “Boogie Back Rap.” Jenny Jen was also featured in XXL Magazine, the world’s biggest hip hop magazine.
She wrote her thesis on skating at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business, and after graduation, earned her certification as an international in-line skate instructor.
