Bonjour! Hola! Aloha! Hello!
First, I'd like to set the record straight, and help ease your mind, by telling you how to pronounce "LeJeune." It rhymes with "clan," "van," or "fan," and has a soft-ish J sound. Try it out!
Now to the good stuff! I wear many, many hats. Some of my most recent hats include actress, web designer, video editor, producer, singer, and screen writer. I love storytelling in all its forms.
Acting was my first love and it will always be my absolute favorite hat. I made my stage debut as Aunt Polly in the musical Tom Sawyer in 5th grade, and after that, being on stage was all I wanted. It's been a whirlwind of an acting career since. Some of my favorite on stage credits are: Brigitta in The Sound of Music, Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, Mary Warren in The Crucible, Gwendolyn Fairfax in The Importance of Being Earnest and Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice.
After graduating from Fairview High School with honors, I received a performance scholarship to Catawba College where I majored in Theatre Arts for three semesters. During the summer of 2009, I wrote and produced my own film, Sway. Creating this film instilled a brand new passion for filmmaking that I didn't have before. Since then, I've been pursuing acting both on stage and in film.
To further my film studies, I transferred to Austin Peay State University where I graduated Cum Laude in 2012 with a dual degree in Media Technology and Theatre Performance. Throughout college, I performed in musicals, plays, short and full length films, as well as provided voice overs for other video content. In pursuit of my Media Technology degree, I fell in love with both video editing and web design and since graduating have had a successful freelance career in both art forms.
In late 2015, I was accepted into the inaugural Professional Acting for the Camera Program at UCLA and I graduated in August of 2016.
