Jasmine is a John Wells Fellow at the Carnegie Mellon University School of Drama, pursuing her MFA in Directing. 

Before moving to Pittsburgh, Jasmine was an Arizona based Theatre Artist working as a director, choreographer, actor, dancer, teaching artist, and arts administrator. She was the Director of Learning and Education for Arizona Theatre Company (ATC), for two years after serving as the company's Education Associate for three. In her time at ATC, she founded ATCteen and the ATCteen Council to provide free, accessible and equitable theatre education focusing on leadership, craftmanship and the empowerment of teen artists, successfully ran a flagship of TCG's Veterans Playwriting Projects, where she mentored four military veterans in the process of turning their experiences into theater, deepened community partnerships, and expanded education programming to adult artists and community members. 

As a Director and Choreographer Jasmine works on both professional and teen productions and loves new works, transforming classics, collaborative processes and bringing an awareness of movement to everything she does. Her work for the past five years has been primarily on the stages of Something Something Theatre Company (Men on Boats, The How and the Why, What Every Girl Should Know), CYT Tucson (Seussical, Beauty and the Beast) and Arizona Theatre Company (Summer on Stage: Matilda, Macbeth, Polaroid Stories, Assistant Dir. Music Man, Veteran's Playwriting Project Staged Readings). As a Teaching Artist, Jasmine has taught both theatre and dance internationally in Cape Town, South Africa and Hanoi, Vietnam, and in schools and community organizations across the US.

As a performer Jasmine has been both an actor and dancer. She was a company member with the modern dance company ZUZI! Dance, and has acted with Saratoga Shakespeare Company, Winding Road Theatre Ensemble, Something Something Theatre, Momentum Theatre Troupe, 24 Hour Plays, Roadrunner Theatre Company, Solas Nua Boston, and Theatre Kapow. Jasmine studied theatre and dance at Union College in upstate NY, where she graduated Summa Cum laude. She also trained as an actor with New York Stage and Film’s Powerhouse Apprentice Program, Saratoga Shakespeare Company and SITI Company.

 

Jasmine grew up mainly in Manchester, NH, but has lived in 16 different homes, 5 states, and 8 cities.

When not near the stage you can find Jasmine pulling tarot cards or tending to her cat and plants.
