ABOUT JEN KELLEY: Jen grew up in New Hampshire, attended college in Vermont, and then in 1991 dragged her packed Plymouth Horizon to Los Angeles, California. There she found her niche working as a talent agent in the Youth division of TGI/Bloom, where she helped to launch the careers of Michelle Williams, Brandi Norwood and Erika Christenson.
After five years, four mudslides, two earthquakes and one riot, Jen left the City of Angels and moved to Atlanta, Georgia. There she discovered the joy of grits and pimento cheese, while resuming her life as a talent agent at People Store. Jen worked in all departments during her 14 years there, eventually becoming the department head of the commercial and industrial divisions. She left People Store October 1, 2011 to form Big Picture Casting, Inc. with Rita Harrell.
Jen is also a co-founder and the Artistic Director of Sketchworks Theatre. There she writes, directs, produces and acts in various sketch comedy shows throughout the year. She has also co-written "The Actor’s Guide for Kids," a successful actor’s handbook published by Illustrata. In her spare time, Jen enjoys tennis, gardening, writing and volunteering at Furkids. She lives in Atlanta with her husband Nick and her cat who thinks he’s a dog, Maximum Jackson (Max).
