Jessica began her formal music theatre training at Patrick Studios Australia under the direction of Andrew Hallsworth before studying a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Music Theatre) at the Victorian College of the Arts. Jessica was mostly recently seen as Maggie in A Chorus Line (Darlinghurst Theatre Company) and Hunyak in Chicago (John Frost and Suzanne Jones). She made her professional music theatre debut as an ensemble member in The Boy From Oz for The Production Company in 2018 and other credits include the Australian premiere production of Lazarus (The Production Company), Ascent (Citizen Theatre Company) and West Side Story (HANDA Opera for Opera Australia) on Sydney Harbour. She was also the grateful recipient of the 2017 Ron and Margaret Dobell Foundation Music Theatre Award.
Jessica is honoured to be returning to the stage in 9 to 5 and would like to thank her family, friends and agent for their unwavering support.
