Jensen is a 2003 graduate of Miami University. Upon completion of his studies at Miami, Jensen accepted a position as Sports Biomechanist at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Sports Medicine Biodynamics Center.

In August of 2012, his interest in working more closely with the individual athletes led Jensen to resign from his full time role at Children’s Hospital to open The Academy of Sports Performance. He still maintains close professional ties with CCHMC and regularly consults with their clinical and research staff regarding a variety of projects.
