As a teenager, she actively played in drama circles and was still a leader-scout. The girl loves animals since childhood, because her family has repeatedly rescued and raised dogs. The girl became a volunteer at the Open Door Animal Sanctuary, which is located in Chesterfield, Missouri.
The girl became a real discovery at the age of 13 at PetSmart in Chesterfield. The girl was working as a volunteer at a cat center and was noticed by Mary Clarke of Mother Model Management. At the time, she had a size 8 clothing – just in the middle between the standard parameters for the model and the “plus-size” category. Clarks offered the girl a modeling career, but Jenny had to either lose those extra pounds for the standard parameters, or get the missing ones for the plus-size category. The girl decided to choose the second one and reached the size of 10-12 kg.
The girl’s career began with the signing of a contract with the New York agency “Wilhelmina Models” in March 2004, at that time she was 15 years old. She later transferred to another agency at Ford Models. Only in 2011, after moving to New York, Jenny Rank became officially a full-fledged model.

The girl has also appeared in Cosmo Girl in February 2006, Marie Claire in October 2007, and in several articles in Seventeen magazine. Jenny was interviewed by Vogue Italia’s Vogue CURVY.

The beautiful plus-size model became widely known, she was talked about in the media, blogs and social networks. During the day, her page on “Facebook” received 2000 new subscribers, and in a few months their number increased to 12000 people.
