Jenise was born in San Mateo and raised in Foster City in a corner home right next to Bowditch, where she attended middle school. It wasn’t until she reached high school that she tried out for AIT, otherwise known as The Aragon Improv Team and joined the team her freshman year. She was coached by professional improvisers, Lisa Rowland from BATS and Andy Sarouhan from Unscripted Theatre. AIT would meet for club and teamwork 3 times a week to prepare for big shows like Improv Olympics- a theatresports style of improv, discuss upcoming lunch shows, practice their teaching skills with club members, and improvise! Jenise loved working her short-form improv skills to produce long-form shows like Improv Actually, Murder Mystery, and The Sound of Improv (an improvised musical), all shows produced by the Aragon Improv Team. She and her team loved improvising musicals so much that her senior year, she and her team convinced the coaches to allow them produce yet another spontaneous musical. After graduating from the team, Jenise was seen in Improvapalooza, a free-form show ending Harold style, with professional improvisers produced to help raise funds for San Mateo high school improv teams. Now, Jenise gets together once a week with Trash Monsters, her very casual group of friends who like to improvise together and hope to make it big in the improv world one day.
