Jade was a star at five years old, well at least that's what she told everyone who watched her on the stage that her dad built her in the back yard. It was the nightly improvisation, commercials and musical theater sketches with mom, dad and friends that cemented her love of singing, dancing and acting. At age 7, she made her first movie. Yep, she directed, edited and acted with her two best friends; amazing what you could do with an iPad!
Her first film experience was as Angel in Master Media's short film "Building Bridges" at the opening the Variety Arts Conference. Jade continued with her early success playing the lead role of Millie as an eighth grader in Village Christian High Schools production of "Thoroughly Modern Millie" for which she won a National Youth Arts Award as best lead actress in a musical.
