Jenna made her second YouTube account in February 2010 because she had always enjoyed making people laugh. She wanted to start off fresh and she intended to use the name of her first account but her mother disagreed as she thought Jenna putting her last name out there and making videos that were bound to consist of inappropriate content would ruin her job chances as she was looking for one. Jenna then went with "Jenna Marbles" and started making videos. Her channel quickly became popular, allowing her to focus on videos full-time.
She has a podcast titled "the Jenna Julien Podcast" which is posted every Monday where she, along with her boyfriend speak their minds on different topics.
Jenna's videos are known for their raunchy humor, sarcasm, inventive curses, and relation to real-life events.

She as well currently often talks in a slower, somewhat hyper, cute and childish manner.
She has made videos consisting of different characters, real or fictional videos describing, for example, how men and women get ready in the morning. For her "male" videos, Mourey typically wears a blue polo shirt, a backwards baseball cap, and a drawn-on curly mustache. Nearly all of Jenna's videos feature her current boyfriend Julien Solomita, with her four dogs playing major roles as well.
