Since hanging up her power suits and super hot art history rhetoric as Bette Porter, Jennifer has worked pretty continually. Since 2009 she enjoyed a multi-episode arc on Lie to Me before landing the lead as a tough-talking police chief on Fox's short-lived The Chicago Code. Fans were beyond excited when Jennifer starred alongside Troian Bellisario (Pretty Little Liars) in the heavy-hitting web series Lauren (about military rape).
On the big screen she starred in an indie set in the world of jazz, The Lord of Vinyl, and in the indie Cinemanovels with another L Word alum, Lauren Lee Smith (Lara), in 2013.
In 2015 Jennifer starred in the Kyra Sedgwick produced Proof for TNT, about a surgeon commissioned by an infinitely wealthy dying man to prove if there is life after death. Unfortunately, it was canceled after its first season. She's since had multi-episode arcs on Taken (based on the movies) and on the medical drama The Night Shift.
Next up, look for Jennifer in a pair of indies slated for 2017 -- White Orchid and Before I Fall.
A multi-talent, Jennifer also went on to release a "photographic journal" of photos she took behind-the-scenes of the show entitled, The L Word Book (now out of print). Also a vocal supporter of LGBT rights, the actress received the Human Rights Campaign’s Ally for Equality Award.
Most recently, her activism took her to Standing Rock where she stood with protesters against the Dakota Pipeline for several days on end in December, according to her Instagram posts.
