Q. What was your first job?
A. My first job was as a babysitter. I took care of two children every Saturday, all day and made $.50 a day! And I was happy to have it. My second job was in a dry cleaning establishment and that taught me that I had better work harder in school as that was brutal in the summer!!!!!
Q. What would people be surprised to learn about you?
A. I am very much still a tomboy! I love to do outdoor work (as long as it’s not gardening!) I enjoy fishing in Alaska, camp out and if presented with a tree to climb, I would be the first one up!!!
Q. If you were the eighth dwarf, what would your name be?
A. If I were the eighth dwarf, I would be called “Peppy.”
Q. What household chore do you hate the most?
A. The household chore I hate the most is grocery shopping!
MARNA RIORDAN | VICE PRESIDENT
Marna Riordan graduated from Marquette University (they are the Warriors. Period. End of story). She acted locally and in Chicago before moving to the West Coast for a decade. While she will always love acting, she found that she had a real knack for the business side working for a movie company and feature film producer. Marna heads up the Acting Department here at Jennifer’s.
Q. Do you prefer eating the frosting of the cupcake or the cupcake first?
A. Most people will hate me for this but I don’t like frosting, I only eat the cupcake part.
Q. What TV game show would you want to go on?
A. This is aging me but definitely the $10,000 Pyramid with Stacy as my partner. We’ve worked side by side for over 12 years, we would totally kick butt!
Q. You were just given a yacht. What would you name it?
A. "What’s That Smell?" It’s a long story...
STACY HOFMAN | TALENT AGENT
Stacy Hofman joined the agency as an intern in 2000 when she was still an undergrad at University Wisconsin-Milwaukee (Go, Panthers!!). After she graduated they kept her on (or refused to let her go . . . depends on who you ask). Stacy enjoys working with the best actors, models and kids in town. She loves that every day is something new . . . you just never know what will come across your desk.
Q. What was your favorite 80s movie?
A. Pretty much anything by John Hughes (Sixteen Candles, Planes, Trains & Automobiles, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off & Home Alone ~ they are all gems)! And The Goonies . . . so many good movies in the 80’s to just pick one!!
