Aside from appearing on Kaya, Jessica was featured in the made-for-TV movie Santa Baby, opposite Jenny McCarthy and George Wendt. She has also appeared in the film Decoys 2: Alien Seduction and the short film Karma, Incorporated.
But Jessica mainly enjoys performing onstage. She has participated in Canada's Shakespeare in the Park festival, with roles in Love's Labours Lost and Henry IV, and co-starred in such theatrical productions as Unity 1918, The Diviners, Dead Man Walking and Beauty Herself Is Black.
Born in Canada, Jessica began acting in local theatre productions in Calgary, Alberta, when she was just 7 years old. After graduating from high school, she studied theater arts at Mount Royal College in Calgary. When she's not filming Kaya, she is a self-proclaimed "certified shopaholic" who enjoys watching movies, swimming in the Pacific Ocean and hanging out with her dog, Panda.
