Jessica is a Broadway singer, dancer and actress currently working and living in New York City. She is a native of beautiful Palm Beach County, Florida. Music & Singing was introduced to her very early on as it seems to be hereditary. She studied classical ballet, jazz & modern for 13 years under the direction of Joan Miller at The Palm Beach Ballet Center and attended The Palm Beach County School of the Arts (now Dreyfoos School of the Arts) where she was a dance/theatre major. She discovered her true passion for Musical Theatre when she attended the Broadway Theatre Project under the direction of Ann Reinking.
Jessica was accepted as only one of four incoming freshmen for the BFA Musical Theatre Program at Florida State University. After graduating with w/ honors, she toured North America with Cats & Fosse for 2 years, then made the big move to NYC. She hit the ground running landing a role in Northshore Music Theatre's production of West Side Story where she received her Equity card. Five months after moving to the city, the dream came true. She made her Broadway debut in The Boy From Oz starring Hugh Jackman in early 2004. After BFO she performed regionally in several shows like Sandy in Grease at Lenape Regional Theatre, a featured dancer in the world premiere of Frank Wildhorn's Waiting for The Moon, Curtains at the Ahmanson Theatre in LA, & Cats and Beauty & The Beast at the Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia. In 2006, she was cast in the Broadway Revival of A Chorus Line, where she started by understudying the roles of Diana, Sheila, & Judy, then shortly after, Maggie was added. A year after joining ACL, Jessica was chosen to be the Cassie Alternate, performing the role every Sunday. ACL was followed by the Original Broadway Companies of 9 to 5 the Musical, understudying the role of Judy Bernly, The Addams Family as the Flapper Ancestor & understudying Morticia (played by Bebe Neuwirth) & Wednesday Addams, & The People In The Picture, understudying the role of Red.
