Jen McAllister hails from Portland, Oregon. A childhood of rainy days spent indoors with her sisters helped foster an active imagination, and a love of acting. She graduated from Wellesley College in 1988 with degrees in Psychology and French, then spent a year traveling and working in Europe. Upon returning to the USA, Jen relocated to San Francisco, where she studied acting at American Conservatory Theater, and improv at Bay Area Theatre Sports. A move to Los Angeles in 2002 led Jen into film acting, and since then she has had lead and supporting roles in 22 films, 5 web series, 2 videos, 1 TV show, and 4 stage plays. She is very proud of the 5 years she spent performing monthly improv shows with the group Side Effects. Jen continues to study the craft of acting and to seek out exciting, challenging, and fun roles.
