A Kansas City native, Jessalyn has had the great good fortune to work as a singer and actor at some of the finest professional theatres the area has to offer, including critically-acclaimed turns at the Kansas City Repertory Theatre, the New Theatre Restaurant, the American Heartland Theatre, the Unicorn Theatre, the Quality Hill Playhouse, the Coterie Theatre, and Musical Theater Heritage.  She has also had the distinct honor of working with such music luminaries as Harry Connick, Jr. and Broadway composers Stephen Schwartz,  Lynn Ahrens, Stephen Flaherty, Bill Russell, and Henry Kreiger.
In 2007 she was honored by the Pitch Magazine as the recipient of their annual MASTERMIND Award, presented to one person each year for artistic excellence. When not onstage, she enjoys pretending to be a great chef, crocheting (no, she does not knit), planning road trips that never seem to happen, and being a faithful fan to the Kansas City Royals.
