Favorite roles include Stratyllis in Lysistrata at Spotlighters Theatre, Shelley in Designed to Kill Episode I an Eden Productions series, and various fun supportive roles in community theatre. When she is not on stage or in rehearsal she is going to the gym or eating but more so the latter. Special thanks to friends and family, especially my husband who doesn’t mind me constantly gallivanting off to rehearsal.

Much love to the rest of the cast and crew!

After a long hiatus from theater, Jessie has rekindled her love for performing and worked with A Taste for Murder Productions, played Sarah in The Toxic Avenger (Greenbelt Arts Center), and Nikki in The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 (Rockville Little Theater).
