Jenny grew up in a family of actors, poets and puppeteers. They traveled and performed around the US and Mexico, from major metropolitan cities to remote fishing villages. These beginnings ignited her love of a good story and gave her an eye for the interesting. Casting came naturally.
Jenny’s first independent casting project was for director Mark Pellington (‘Arlington Road’) on Pete Droge’s award winning music video ‘Beautiful Girls’. This highly publicized hit music video had Pellington nominated for a GRAMMY, and launched the opening of O’Haver + Company Casting, offering casting, on-set interviewing and select market research services.
Since then, O’Haver + Company has worked on scores of projects in the general and Hispanic markets including national and international commercials, Reality TV, music videos, voice-overs, print, television and independent films. They work all over the United States and Canada, virtually and on-location. Their TV clients include HBO, MTV and AMC and their indie films have gained awards at Sundance and Cannes Film Festivals among several others. Commercial clients, many top Fortune 500 companies, include; McCann, J. Walter Thompson, McGarry Bowen, AVON, Weight Watchers, Verizon, Mercedes Benz, IBM, Bristol Myers Squibb, VISA, McDonalds, Coca-Cola, Staples…the list goes on and on. Some of the directors they have had the honor to work with include Elma Garcia, Bennett Miller, Traktor, Joe Pytka, Mark Romenak, Mark Pellington and many more.
