In love with the idea of becoming an actress from the age of five, Jessica was 12 before she took her first acting class. Nine months later, she was signed by an agent. A gifted young actress, Jessica has already played a variety of roles ranging from light comedy to gritty drama since beginning her career 3 and a half years ago. Jessica made her feature film debut in 1993 in Hollywood Pictures comedy 'Camp Nowhere'. Originally hired for two weeks, she got her break when an actress in a principal role suddenly dropped out. Jessica cheerfully admits it wasn't her prodigious talent or charm that inspired the director to tap her to take over the part. It was her hair, which matched the original performer's. The two week job stretched to two months, and Jessica ended the film with an impressive first credit.
Two National TV commercials for Nintendo and J.C. Penny quickly followed before Jessica was featured in several independent films. She branched out into TV in 1994 with recurring role in Nickelodeon's popular comedy series 'The Secret World of Alex Mack'. She played an insufferable young snob, devoted to making life miserable for the the title character, played by Larisa Oleynick.
That same year, she won the role of Maya in 'Flipper' and filmed the pilot for the series. Jessica spent 1995 shooting the first season's episodes in Australia. An avid swimmer and PADI-certified scuba diver, Jessica was delighted to be doing a show which allows her to play with dolphins. The success of the first season of 'Flipper' lead to the filming of the second season, which Jessica also starred in. Jessica involvement in 'Flipper' lasted from 1995-1997.
Since 'Flipper' Jessica has appeared in a number of television shows and movies that include the Canadian talkshow 'Dini Petty Show', movie 'Punks', TV series 'Brooklyn South', 'Beverly Hills 90210' and more.. Her most recent appearances are Dark Angel and she has graced the cover of the October Maxim magazine.

The sad thing is i haven't even seen her movies that i should of seen long time ago..i've been so busy ..gosh give me a break!! .. Plus i'm not really big on movies.. maybe that explains that trait..
