Speaking Engagements

Jennifer loves speaking with Acting Majors who are looking for insight into not only what it takes to build (and maintain) an acting career, but what you can expect from the working relationship between Casting Director and Actor. Speaking engagements are thirty minutes, followed by a fifteen-minute Q&A. 

Private Coaching

One-on-One: Do you want to take your audition skills to the next level, or need help preparing for a theatrical or on-camera callback? Schedule a sixty-minute private coaching session and Jennifer will help you further explore your character in the context of the audition scene. 

Groups: Understanding the choices your fellow actors make in approaching a scene, is just as important as developing your own. This two-hour session provides both individual attention and the opportunity for a group of five actors, to gain awareness of how their peers interpret the same scene. Through constructive feedback, actors learn different ways to give breath to a character's physical & emotional behavior.
