FOUNDERS

JoJo Ginn is a Canadian-born American actress raised in Ohio. She graduated from Ohio Northern University with a BFA in Musical Theatre after realizing she wanted to pursue theatre professionally- instead of becoming a lawyer. She has never regretted this decision. She graduated with her MFA in Acting from East 15 School of Acting where she was blessed enough to perform on The Globe stage and learn from some of the most generous and inspiring teachers and peers. She is so thankful for her family's love and support, and for putting up with her shower singing for so many years. jojoginn.com
