Acting wasn't always at the forefront of Jennifer Gareis' "beautiful" mind. With algebra and geometry as her favorite subjects in school, she took the advice of her older sister and worked toward a career in accounting. She attended Franklin & Marshall College located in her hometown, Lancaster, PA, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting. Although she was offered a job from a well-respected accounting firm in her senior year of college, she thanked them for the opportunity and chose to follow her dream: acting.
