Jessica recently moved to the Greenville area after performing at Walt Disney World and Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida for the past several years. You may have seen her as “friends” with Tinker Bell, Alice in Wonderland and Wendy from Peter Pan. She was in an equity contract as Casey in Disney Junior Live on Stage at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. One of her favorite roles was Cindy Lou Who in Grinchmas at Universal Studios. Jessica is so excited to teach your rising stars and to learn from them as well.
