Jennifer Koenig was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She is the ninth child born to her parents and was a shy girl who happily spent time with animals, creating art or reading. She is a former attendee of Langara College as well as Kwantlen University College. Ironically, Jennifer found her most profound creative expression as a story teller and actor. After working in film and television in other capacities, she moved to Vancouver in 2009 to resume studying and pursue the craft of acting. This has led to her being cast in the thriller movie Embedded, guest starring on television drama Fringe and in the web series 13 Witches.
Ironically, her surname Koenig is the German word for King (König).
