It was during her time at the Watah Theatre training with the acclaimed and revolutionary D'bi Young Anitafrika, that Jena rediscovered her love for being involved behind the scenes, specifically directing.

Currently based out of Steps Dance Studio in Toronto - Jena has been performing, competing, choreographing and coaching in dance across Canada for over 15 years, specializing in Urban, Caribbean and Latin styles. She has trained intensively with some of the finest choreographers and coaches nationally & internationally, including; Anya Katsevman, Tito Ortos & Tamara Livolsi, Jennifer Aucoin & Angelo De Torres, Paula Videla-Rodriguez & Jose Rodriguez, Young Kim & Genevieve Michaud, Yara Vasconcelos, Mira Schwartzburg, and Vanesa Stay. In 2011, Jena was featured on "So You Think You Can Dance Canada," season 4, as a top 70 finalist.
