Jessi Goei, originally from Long Island, New York, lives in Wilmington, North Carolina with her parents and two sisters. Jessi is very involved with church, enjoys hanging out with friends, and loves to perform. Starting gymnastics at three years old then onto dance, gave her many opportunities to appear in front of an audience. Jessi quickly advanced in dance, learning modern, jazz, lyrical, tap, acrobatics, theatre dance, and ballet (pointe). Always intrigued by violin, at six years old she begged her parents for her to start lessons, which eventually led to playing for weddings. The desire to start acting began at nine years old when she saw her older sister perform in A Christmas Carol. Ever since that moment, Jessi has been engrossed in musical theatre. She has performed in numerous shows in Wilmington and a few of her favorites are, The King and I (fan dancer/princess), Peter Pan (Tigerlilly), West Side Story (Consuela), High School Musical (Gabriella), Aladdin (Jasmine) and Cats(Assistant director and choreographer). In the fall of 2015, she started private voice lessons to strengthen her ability as an singer. Though she loves performing on stage, she equally enjoys being in front of the camera. Her most recent credits include an episode of the TV series Sleepy Hollow (2015) and a principal on the independent film, Where Angels Dwell (2014). She uses her God given talents to glorify Him and wouldn’t want to be doing anything else.
