Jennifer Brofer is a filmmaker and make-up artist who served as a Marine Corps broadcast journalist. Growing up, she always had a love for film and television, but she put her dreams on hold in order to answer the call to military service.
In 2010, she deployed for a year to Afghanistan’s Helmand Province as the 1st Marine Logistics Group (Forward) Public Affairs Chief, coordinating news coverage of the unit’s forward deployed Marines and sailors.
In January 2012, Brofer was honorably discharged from the Marine Corps and went on to attend film school at The University of Texas at Austin, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Radio-Television-Film. She is also a professional make-up artist specializing in beauty and special effects, having graduated from the Master Program at Makeup Designory in Burbank.
When she's not making films or looking at kittens on Instagram, she volunteers as an ambassador for Pin-Ups for Vets, an award-winning non-profit organization that benefits hospitalized veterans and deployed troops across the globe.
