Recently located to Oregon from California, Jessi is bamboozled by all the fantastic theater Portland has to offer. Last seen as the Nurse, in Post5 Theatre’s production of Romeo & Juliet, she is excited to take on her newest role as the Director of Funds for the company. Jessi received her B.A. in Theater, Film & Dance from Humboldt State University, and has also trained at Dell’Arte International School of Physical Theater. She can most recently be found teaching acting workshops at Catlin Gabel School, and Northwest Children’s Theater. Captivated by the transformative possibilities, Jessi has also started dabbling in the field of freelance hair and makeup. Some of her favorite roles include Madame Arcati in Blithe Spirit, The Nurse in Romeo & Juliet, Ann in All My Sons, Diana in Lend Me a Tenor, and anything that involved mask work. She would like to thank her family and Post5 Theatre for so many wonderful moments, on and off the stage.
