Jenna McGowan plays the role of 'Shannon' - Kat's bitchy older sister who loves the spotlight. Jenna enjoys playing this role because it is a complete contrast from who she is in real life and it's a change from "the girl next door" image, which she has done before in the past. Jenna is originally from Sharon, MA and got her undergraduate degree at UNH for Occupational Therapy. She then went on to receive a Masters Degree from Simmons College for Applied Behavior Analysis. When she is not on set, Jenna works part-time as a Behavior Analyst with children who have Autism.
This past July, Jenna decided to pursue her childhood dream of becoming an actress and has since been involved with over a dozen projects. She's had a great time working on, "The Cold Read" so far and cannot wait to see how the series develops. Jenna also moved out to L.A. to pursue acting after the series ended, and she is having a great time while continuing her work as a Behavior Analyst as well.
