Jessica grew up in Warren, NJ, which, for those wondering, is a slightly less Italian, slightly more Jewish version of the town from The Real Housewives of New Jersey. She received her BFA in Drama from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts via the Atlantic Theater Company and moved to LA. Upon arriving in LA, she finally stopped pretending she was interested in classic texts.
Able to live her truth at long last, Jessica proudly proclaimed her love of the multi-cam sitcom and began studying with Lesly Kahn. She's still in class there, and is now a member of the faculty.
As a writer, her script, 23 and We was named a finalist in the Final Draft Big Break and the ScreenCraft Comedy competitions. She's been staffed on Hulu's Betch and has had sketches and series featured on the homepages of Funny or Die and Elizabeth Banks' WhoHaHa.
As an actress, she's appeared on TV in ABC's Mixology and NBC's Blake Shelton's Not So Family Christmas. She can be seen in the Redbox hit, Breaking Wind, which is Lionsgate's spoof on the Twilight movies. She plays Anna Kendrick's character and is happy to ride Anna's success all the way to a blossoming career should they decide to spoof any of her other films.
Jessica loves Disneyland, Kate Middleton, and the Olympics. Her favorite character of fiction is Karen Walker.
