About this pro


Hello Indiana!! Please take note of the new website address:

If you have any questions please meet me there as I have to pay to respond to you here. When there are so many people requesting information it adds up. 


I specializ in encouraging a positive mental attitude (P.M.A), reawakening ones self worth, and improving skills without negative reinforcement. 

I try my best to make it a fun, creative, and a no wrong answers type of learning enviornment. I want my students to feel absolutely comfortable taking any stage. 

It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or have been doing this 10 years, practice makes perfect. My focus is getting you to a place where you can thrive and soar fully confident with technical understanding. 

Every class has parts of it filmed so that you may start adding to your portfolio immediately while constantly being able to see your growth. 

If you have any specific questions please contact me at [email protected] 

The best part about what I do is being able to see the progress in my students. When they realize "I can actually do this!" That is the moment I live for.

    I love her angle as an acting coach. Coach Jai showed me how to be like the professionals and how to get gigs. The class is so much fun and all the back up material she gives you like all the terminology for the industry and pictures to help you remember the binder is pretty thick! I can't believe I learned so much in such a short amount of time. Then we get to practice what we learned at the graduation ceremony and then I got a free year to do follow up work to perfect my skill. Don't know if she still offers it, but it was pretty cool. Now I can work where ever I want. In theater or in film. Se does a good job and it's worth 40X whatever she charges. It was really good!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

My initial contact will be over the phone going through general registration questions and deciding the location (my office in Stockton or somewhere closer to where the student lives.). 

Our first meeting will consist of obtaining their binder, slating, general assessment of skill to see where we begin and then we start the process of improving and perfecting. 

We can meet however often is necessary, but most of my clients meet once a week. Everyone's situation is different.  

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been an actress in theater and film for over 18 years. I have taught privately and in group settings with youth and adults since 2011. I created the curriculum that we utilize to be all inclusive so that your foundation will be solidified in understanding.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Yes, one on one private 2-hour sessions are $60.00 per visit. Group sessions vary depending on type of program. All of my graduates receive 1 year (12 continued education lessons) free and have top priority selection in my films and productions. 

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching in a group setting for youth. I loved the response I was getting. Their understanding of the art improved dramatically and I decided to pursue this as a life long and very rewarding passion. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with all types of students, from all types of backgrounds, and all types of lifestyles. Everyone is welcome to come and get the information that will make them so empowered it will change the course of their life! 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I am fond of the "Aha" moments. When it finally clicks and you can see it all over their face. Thats why I do what I do. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure you are comfortable with them. When you are giving your time to someone else you want to make sure it's worth it for you. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Sometimes you don't know what to ask, that's ok. Tell them that. They should be able to start a thought provoking dialogue with you enough for you to get a good understanding or questions out that you may think of when they talk, both are ok.
