Jennifer plays Cathy Brown, the daughter in the BBC sitcom Mrs. Brown's Boys which has recently been made into a hit film, Mrs. Brown's Boys D'Movie. She is married to the lead actor of the series, Brendan O'Carroll, who plays Mrs. Brown.

Jennifer took part in the twelfth series of Strictly Come Dancing, and danced with Tristan MacMaus. After a nervous Jive in week one, Jenny looked more comfortable in hold in her Waltz in week two, but close to the bottom of the leader board, she and Tristan found themselves in the bottom two at the end of the second week. A better performance than the main show saw them saved by the judges, but the next week, their Mamma Mia inspired Foxtrot for Movie week, saw them in the bottom two again. Jenny obviously enjoyed the dance, but up against a stronger routine, the judges voted unanimously against Jenny & Tristan, seeing them leave the competition in 14th place.
