Jessica joined Steps in the Fall of 2019 as an expansion to the USA team. Her passion for activating change through theatre led her to a Master’s Degree in Applied Theatre with The City University of New York. There she learned new and creative ways to use theatre as a behavioral change tool with a keen curiosity towards facilitation and effective learning.
With years of experience as a facilitator in education and as a professional music theatre actor, Jessica is thrilled to bring her unique skillset to be a part of the Steps team. She is currently based in New York City and now believes that after almost a decade she can finally claim the title of “New Yorker” – just in time to move to New Jersey!

In 3rd grade I decided I would be a bilingual lawyer who would be fluent in Mandarin – a surprising dream career for a small girl from the farm fields of Ohio. Even more to my parent’s surprise, I decided to leave behind the dreams of a law career and take on a career in theatre!
In New York City there are so many adventures to be had. I think a perfect weekend for myself would be a trip to a local festival or museum paired with a long afternoon in the park and a trip (or two) to the local thrift stores
