The Actor's Toolbox
While at Elon, Jessie appeared in a variety of roles (Whatsername in American Idiot, Jennyanydots in Cats, and Lizzie in Baby, to name a few). Along with her standard courses, she also took multiple Shakespeare and audition classes, and served as a teaching assistant for Rock the Music Theatre (a class dedicated to performing pop/rock material in auditions). She ended her time at Elon with an eight-week casting director series where she refined her audition techniques with some of the top casting directors and agencies in New York. After graduating, Jessie signed with Heyman Talent Agency and performed a full-year-contract with Dollywood Theme Park.
Jessie’s goal as an audition coach is to provide updated industry insights that will help students attack their auditions with confidence and ease. As a teacher, she hopes to do much of the same while maintaining a strong focus on technique. She believes strongly in balancing passion and play as you work to find the best “you” to bring to each audition.
