“I am not young enough to know everything.”
– James M. Barrie

Born and raised in Peterborough, Ontario, “Jumping Jess” was never one to sit still. She is certainly grateful her parents chose to enroll her in dance lessons to focus her boundless energy! She trained in dance at Premiere Studio of Dance for over fourteen years studying jazz, ballet, tap, contemporary, lyrical, acrobatics, musical theatre, and hip hop. From a young age, she performed in dozens of musical productions in her community and was resident choreographer for two original plays with Arbor Theatre.

A graduate of Sheridan’s Honours Bachelor of Music Theatre Performance Program, Jessica is a true Triple Threat! In 2015, she spent the summer performing in the Charlottetown Festival’s Young Company production of We Are Canadian and in her undergraduate she was featured in four productions with Theatre Sheridan. Jessica has since spent two seasons with Anne & Gilbert: The Musical in the ensemble, as a performing understudy, and as Dance Captain. In her second season she took on the role of Associate Choreographer. Most recently, she was a Swing in Anne of Green Gables- The Musical at the Charlottetown Festival: a dream show and role! When she is not performing, she is a devoted teacher in children’s music, dance, and theatre programs and an instructor with Quick Ball Change, Canada’s premiere agency for dance educators.

Jessica is a young and enthusiastic artist who is eager to share her passion. She is fortunate to be pursuing what she loves and is excited to see what this life of adventure will bring!
