Background - From Family To Education

Growing up, Jennie and her two siblings moved around a lot because of her family ties with the military. Eventually, the Pegouskie settled in Seattle, Washington.

After finishing her schooling from Woodbrook Middle School, she enrolled in the Communicating and Marketing programme at the University of Washington.

Following her college graduation in 2010, Jennie worked for real estate companies for the next six years. At the same time, using her dance background, she toured the world with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

Behind Jennie Pegouskie's Career-Defining Gig

Up until 2017, Jennie never really gave modeling a serious thought. Her career-defining gig opposite of Ed Sheeran help change that.

Fans may be surprised to know that director of the music video for Shape Of You had initially hired her as assistant production supervisor. She got handed the role as the lead after the said director and Ed Sheeran realized how beautiful she looked on camera.

Jennie, for her part, gave her all. As of March 2019, Shape Of You has over 4.1 billion views on YouTube.
