Jessa has spent her life in the theatre studying and teaching the power of words. In response to the pandemic halting live performances, coupled with a devastating hurricane, she leaned into the unexpected change. Shifting into a less demanding phase of life, Jessa decided to explore one of the few interests she had always been too busy to pursue. Writing. As a former director and actor, manipulating language into a story and dialogue not intended to be performed, has created a welcome challenge. Always unapologetic and introspective, her art explores the dark, dirty, and depraved humanity lurking within us all. Finding a new voice in writing fiction, there is certainly more to come.
Born and raised on the Westbank of New Orleans, Jessa now resides quietly in Lafayette, LA.
Minding her business, for now.
