Jo-Marie is an actress who grew up in the Bay Area in California. After living in LA for 3 years taking classes, working commercially, and pursuing her dreams, she ventured to New York. There she studied acting at the Maggie Flannigan Studio where she fell in LOVE with the craft and art of storytelling. Unfortunately while snowboarding one Christmas Eve, she had a life changing accident and sustained a spinal cord injury at the C4 vertebrae. After a year and a half of vigorous rehab, she decided it was time to get back to her creative life even if it looked a little different.
This year, she's worked in San Francisco and starred in many commercials and print ads such as Meta, WhatsApp, Eero, Webflow, Wells Fargo, UCSF health, and recently booked a national commercial for Indeed. When she’s not acting she is wheelchair adventuring, lost in her paintings, creating wheelchair/disability educational content, working on her Etsy business, or predicting reality television.
