GRATITUDE & UNCONDITIONAL LOVE
Jade was born in NYC singing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” before she could talk, constantly answering business calls for her mother, and was raised in a conscious and organic lifestyle — home-birthed, never eaten meat/chicken in her life, and obsessed with kale and seaweed before it was "cool".
She attended French Woods Festival of the Performing Arts camp for 9 summers, as well as dedicated her high school career, both onstage and off, to the West Boca Theatre Department and Florida Thespian Festival. Jade is a passionate environmentalist, innovator, artist and change maker.
Jade graduated from Emerson College in Boston, MA one year early (2016) with a BA Theatre Studies: Acting degree and a minor in Entrepreneurship, initially accepted as a BFA Musical Theatre major. Her first 2 years consisted of MT training, and she performed in many college/local Boston productions.
She has released her first single "What If", is currently a proud member of the Actors’ Equity Candidacy Program, and a Voice Over/On-Camera Actress — consistently take classes/workshops, while auditioning for musical theatre, voice, film and new works.
As a sophomore in college (2015), Jade created and produced (and performed in) the first Emerson Green Gala — this event had a mission to drive conscious awareness of “Earth Day” and the environment into the minds and eyes of Emerson College students, faculty, and the Boston community.
The galas included several of Emerson's SGA (student government) recognized organizations, involving over 120 student performers, each crafting a specialized performance piece. The success of the Emerson Green Gala has inspired this to now be recognized as an annual event at the college!
Jade continues to speak on Emerson alum panels, spoke at the Freshman Academic Welcome twice, and proudly received the Spirit of Emerson Award, John C. Zacharis Memorial Scholarship, and Broadway Green Alliance green captain prize on behalf of Emerson.
While still a performing artist, Jade is actively working on the next chapter of her vision — using diverse forms of artistic expression as a platform to inspire positive change. Jade continues to work on a variety of projects, events, and organizations that align with her commitment to making the world a better place.
