About Jessica

Jessica was born in a pineapple field in Hawaii, or at least that’s what her parents told her until the age of five. It was then that she decided to continue the lying and so, at the age of 18, she set out to conquer a BA in Theatre Arts at LaGrange College.

You may have seen Jessica around town performing with Improv Road Show, as a member of The Basement Theatre or with her long form improv group called Carriage House at The Brink Improv.

Jessica has taught far and wide, both children and adults, from South Korea to the Papermill Theatre in Lincoln, NH, to Sketchworks Industrial Strength Comedy here in Atlanta. She has also written and performed original scripts with Sketchworks and the Papermill Theatre.

As the wife of a pilot, Jessica enjoys traveling to far off, exotic places. When she’s not performing, teaching or jet setting, she enjoys fine champagne, walking dogs and dancing to hip Zumba beats.
