I have loved performing since I was barely 2 years old. The proof of said love is captured on a VHS tape that my Mom still has -- I can be seen singing my favorite Disney song at the time, “April Showers” from the movie Bambi. I may not have been able to correctly pronounce all of the words to the song, but I'm pretty sure I NAILED the melody and the “drip, drip, drop” refrain. Luckily, as I've grown older, my diction and lyric memorization has improved. *cue laugh track*

 

Since returning to the Bay Area after college, I have had the opportunity to perform at several south Bay Area venues with numerous companies including  Broadway by the Bay, Lyric Theatre, Tabard Theatre, Free Range Opera, and the Stanford Savoyards.  Some of my favorite Lyric roles include Maria (The Sound of Music), Pitti-Sing (The Mikado), Tessa (The Gondoliers), Meg Brockie (Brigadoon). Now that I've moved up the Peninsula from San Jose to Redwood City, I'm excited to see what community theatre and performance opportunities the Peninsula has to offer!

 

During your "typical" working hours, I can be found at Google, project planning for our client meeting center or belting out tunes with Googapella. When I'm not working or performing, I enjoy traveling, PaintNites, karaoke, spending time with family and friends, working out with the Infinity Fitness program in Mountain View, going on outdoor adventures, sewing costumes, getting my Om on at Peacebank Yoga, and sharing my life with my husband and our two cats, Cassia and Zora.

The Sound of Music

Jessica, in the leading role of Maria, has lots of energy and her likeability carries the show. She sings nicely and relates to the children, which is so important in this show.

The Sound of Music

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.

The Sound of Music

The female leads dominated with their fine soprano high notes filling the theater. Chelsea Hollow and Jessica Golden were alternately saucy and winsome as two of the contadina, who marry the pair of young gondolier rulers.​
