A warm hello and thanks for visiting!
I'm Jessica and I have loved performing since I was barely 2 years old. The proof of said love is captured on a VHS tape where I can be seen singing my favorite Disney song at the time, “April Showers,” from the movie Bambi. I may not have been able pronounce all of the lyrics, but I'm pretty sure I NAILED the melody and the “drip, drip, drop” refrain. Luckily my diction and lyric memorization has improved. *cue laugh track*
I've been spotted on stages at several south Bay Area venues with numerous companies including Broadway by the Bay, Lyric Theatre or San Jose, Tabard Theatre, Free Range Opera, and the Stanford Savoyards. Some of my favorite Lyric Theatre roles include Maria Rainer (The Sound of Music), Pitti-Sing (The Mikado), Tessa (The Gondoliers), and Meg Brockie (Brigadoon). Now that I've moved up the Peninsula from San Jose to Redwood City, I've enjoyed performing alongside some of The Bay Area's most talented artists.
During the weekdays I can be found at Google, managing the digital event program for our client meeting center or belting out tunes with Googapella. When I'm not working or performing, I enjoy sewing and baking, spending time with family and friends, working out with Orangetheory, going on outdoor adventures, getting my Om on at Peacebank Yoga, and sharing my life with my husband and daughter and our cat, Zora.

Onstage, [Jessica WAS] that simple girl that Maria must have been when she first met the von Trapp family, socially awkward and unaware of her own amazing inherent abilities as teacher and musician... I never truly believed Julie Andrews, with her posh accent, could be an orphan from a poor family who’d grown up on a mountainside in Austria... I think as singer and actress [Jessica] could have given even the sublime Ms. Andrews a run for her money.
