Jennifer Searles grew up in Nantucket Massachusetts in a large family and with a very competitive nature. From an early age, Jennifer took up the sport of competitive figure skating to quench her competitive spirit. By the time she reached college, unfortunately she had to get off the ice because of knee problems. Upon graduating, Jennifer headed to New York City to pursue a career in acting. Jennifer quickly found modest successes in NY, and while there joined to a gym to make sure she stayed in shape for her acting roles. It did not take long till Jennifer remembered how much she loved the grueling feeling of physical work. Before she knew it, her priorities of training quickly outweighed her desires to act. Jennifer would go on to compete in her first show, the 2001 Natural Eastern Classic. Knowing nothing about figure prep, she still managed to finish 2nd at her first show. 3 years and 10 shows later, Jennifer earned her pro card at the 2004 National Figure Championships. Although a short lived IFBB career, it was in fact a successful one and Jennifer still remains a fan favorite in the industry.

"Why do you do it to yourself? Why do you put up with all the dieting and pain?" My answer is always, "Because I love the sport" Simple. I love the sport. The difficulty and anguish that is involved with getting ready for a show are always worth it. To feel the rush of getting up on that stage and displaying your hard work for all to see is an amazing thing, and makes any amount of pain not only manageable, but welcome.
