About Jessi

Hi! Welcome to my little corner of the world.

I am an professional costumer, which is a vague term to say I’ve done a little bit of everything involved in making costumes for plays, musicals and operas. I’ve worked for 6 (or so) Tony Award-winning theaters and a whole host of other amazing regional theatres.

I am also a writer, though my professional writing career is just beginning. I mostly work on novels (currently I’m querying a YA contemporary fantasy and drafting a MG Christmas Carol retelling), but sometimes I dabble in short stories and poetry. I am also an MFA student in children’s literature at Hollins University.

Send me a note!
