Jessica Joerndt got her start working with talent scout Peter Sklar (alumni include Sarah Jessica Parker, Reese Witherspoon, Sutton Foster) attending his Beginnings Workshop in NYC and Los Angeles. After realizing her love of acting and voice from Sklar's workshop, she put her talents to work by continuing to attend acting classes near her home town of Youngstown, Ohio. She has taken part in lots of theater, with minor and lead roles, and she has recently booked multiple short films and a television role. Jessica has been a singer since she was very young, and at age 18 got the opportunity to perform a solo in her first cabaret show at The Metropolitan Room in NYC. She has performed numerous solos in many concerts, musicals, and benefits, as well as performed in Walt Disney World with a performance group, Liz Rubino Studios. Jessica loves to dance as well, and studies ballet but also loves to try all types of styles. She can't wait to continue her passion for acting, singing, and dance for the rest of her life. Aside from her acting and singing career, Jessica has always had a passion for horse-back riding, and has been riding and competing since age 10. She has won numerous local and regional awards, and can't wait to also continue that passion for as long as possible!
