Playboy: Are you ready for the attention?
Jennifer: Well, I've always been an actress. Growing up, I acted out things at home, always liked attention. When I was 13, I started entering beauty contests. They were nothing big, just little local pageants, but I went from contest to contest, picking up $500 here, $500 there. [Laughs.] I've been in bathing suits too long.
Playboy: And now you're in less than that. Are your friends in Jacksonville surprised, or did they expect this?
Jennifer: My friends in Florida always knew I wanted to get out of there, so they're excited for me. My guy friends are freaking.
Playboy: Why did you want to leave Florida?
Jennifer: I like a fast-paced life, and Jacksonville is sort of a business town. I still love it because of my friends, but I don't really fit in there anymore. Everybody there says I've gone Hollywood, but I haven't. I have just learned a lot of new things, and grown up a lot.
Playboy: How did you hook up with Playboy?
Jennifer: I was at a Hawaiian Tropic International contest, and I went up to the Playboy people and told them they ought to shoot in Venezuela, because it's so beautiful. And Arny Freytag, the photographer, said, "Why don't we shoot you there?" So it was like a Forrest Gump thing -- I just wandered into it. At first I didn't take it seriously. Anybody who knows me will tell you I don't take anything very seriously. But then I realized that it's really hard to be chosen by Playboy, and I should be proud of it and get serious about it.
Playboy: Where do you want to go from here?
Jennifer: My goals are to be an actress and a model. But when it comes down to it, nothing is as important as being a mom. Family is really important to me. I keep forgetting that I'm only 20 years old -- I guess I don't need to rush things.
