Born without legs, Jen’s biological parents left her at the hospital. One would think she would be destined for a life of hardship. However, the hand of destiny brought her an amazing adoptive family, who gave her one simple rule, “Never say the word, Can’t.”
As a child, Jen was obsessed with gymnastics. Her idol was gold-medalist, Dominique Moceanu, who inspired Jen to start competing. Against all odds, Jen went on to compete against able-bodied athletes and became a State Champion in power tumbling. As part of her incredible story, Jen later learned that Dominique was actually her biological sister. Watch an interview with Jen and learn more about her story HERE.
