Jennifer Aspen (born October 9, 1973) is an American actress best known for co-starring as the wife of Rodney Carrington in ABC's family comedy Rodney (2004-2006). She currently plays Jessalyn Gilsig's sister, Kendra, on the show Glee (TV series).



Aspen made her stage debut in the Pasadena Playhouse production of "The Lion in Winter," and is an ongoing member of the Master Class at the Beverly Hills Playhouse[1].

Her TV/film career started in 1995 with a guest role in Hope & Gloria. She appeared in Married with Children as Jamie (1 episode, 1995) in "Guess Who's Coming to Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner".

Jennifer most recently starred opposite Rodney Carrington in ABC's family comedy, Rodney, and she recently filmed a role in New Line Cinema's Mr. Woodcock, opposite Billy Bob Thornton, Susan Sarandon and Seann William Scott.

Aspen can credit her career as an actress to an early high school experience in Santa Cruz, CA during detention. She heard music and followed the sound to discover students who were auditioning for the play How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. She auditioned for the classic musical and, to her surprise, nabbed the lead role. Aspen went on to attend UCLA's School of Theatre, Film and Television, where she received a BA in Theatre.

For the stage, Aspen made her professional debut in the Pasadena Playhouse production of The Lion in Winter, opposite Broadway star Carol Cook. Additional theatre credits include The Half Lives of Marie Curie, The Love of a Nightingale, Pieta, The Water Engine and A Midsummer Night's Dream.
