Gwen, is a young woman trying to survive in New York City as a cleaning woman. Her personality disorder leaves it hard to accomplish most things, or even consider a love life. Greg spots Gwen on the subway and is immediately smitten. Gwen doesn’t realize it yet, but she has a very secret admirer.


Jenny recently completed season as a featured performer in the web series Producing Juliet! with an ISA Nomination as Best Ensemble!
