“It is the artists of the world, the feelers and the thinkers who will ultimately save us; who can articulate, educate, defy, insist, sing and shout the big dreams.”
– Leonard Bernstein

Justine has felt at home on the stage from a young age. She began taking classes at age five, and eventually danced competitively in multiple styles including ballet, jazz, tap, acro, and modern. Her passion and dedication lead her to Ryerson University’s dance program. While studying there, she joined the Ryerson Dance Pak in performing competitively across Ontario, and earned the MVP Award from the team.

After sustaining a serious injury, Justine was inspired to broaden her horizons and pursue an education in acting and voice, as well as dance. She then went on to earn a scholarship to attend Randolph College for the Performing Arts. Upon her graduation she received the Governor General’s Academic Medal for being top of her class, and was a nominee for the Triple Threat Award. Since then her love for musical theatre has only grown stronger.

Justine is thrilled that her career has taken her to stages such as Fallsview Casino Resort, Canada’s Wonderland, Madinat Theatre in Dubai, and the ACC in Newfoundland. Favourite select credits include: Kate/Lucy in Avenue Q, Brooke Wyndham in Legally Blonde, Miss Stacy in Anne of Green Gables, Extraordinary Girl in American Idiot, and Iris Kelly in Fame. Behind the scenes, she has choreographed for the Stephenville Theatre Festival, been an assistant choreographer for Kiri-Lyn Muir, and has been the dance captain for multiple shows. She is an extremely hard-working individual, and cannot wait to see what opportunities lie ahead.
