Jena began dancing over 20 years ago at Terry Fyke Studio of Dance (TFSD) in Scottsville, NY and had the opportunity to teach younger dancers throughout her teen years. During her training at TFSD, Jena had the opportunity to work with Linda Goebel, Thomas Warfield, and other local teachers. In 2003, Jena was among the first team of students from TFSD to perform in Disney World. During college, Jena continued to dance and used her business and accounting skills to work with Terry Fyke on the business aspect of TFSD.
