I’m Jessica, an actress based in LA by way of Dallas, Texas. After getting my BFA and working with Milwaukee Repertory Theatre Company for a year, I decided that I was not built for cold weather and landed here in Los Angeles. Not much time later, I found myself running in circles worrying about what I needed to do for my career and who I needed to target. I was completely burnt out on self-submitting, workshopping, and living by trial and error. Occasionally, I had to learn things the hard way - like when I took a theatrical headshot to a commercial open call and got chewed out by casting. I did luckily meet some great people along the way, but I didn’t know how to foster and keep up those relationships. I felt like a bull with the industry riding on my back; raging through and trying to get out of the pen, but always failing to be able to get somewhere.
With Career ACTivate, I was able to finally showcase my acting skills using Career ACTivate’s strategies to secure top-tier boutique reps in a matter of WEEKS. I also found valuable ways to build upon those past relationships and find myself in a community that’s continually giving back. I respect the artist's journey and all its ups and downs, but I didn’t want to wait years before I see results, when I knew that with smart and proper work, I’d be able to set things in motion faster and more effectively. That’s what Career ACTivate has given me, and that's what I what I want for you.
