Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Jeanette Minson has always had a passion for music, theater, and dance. After making her professional stage debut as a child in the RADIO CITY ROCKETS CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR (Chicago), she was hooked. From there she began acting in commercials and professional theater productions in her hometown.
After high school, Jeanette was accepted on an academic scholarship into the NYU/Tisch Drama Program where she studied at CAP21 for musical theater training and Stonestreet Studios for film and TV acting. During her time at NYU, she had the opportunity to perform in MainStage and Studio productions. She graduated with academic honors and was the recipient of both the Founders' Day Award for Academic Achievement and the Outstanding Achievement in Studio Award from Tisch/CAP21. Immediately upon graduation, Jeanette was named one of Broadway’s Rising Stars and made her Town Hall concert debut.
Since graduation, Jeanette’s love of performing has continued. She has appeared both on camera and on the stage in NYC and around the country at places like The Public Theater, Lincoln Center, Barrington Stage, and Goodspeed to name a few.
In addition to playing pretend on stage and in front of the camera, Jeanette is a MSW candidate at Columbia University pursuing a career in mental health counseling as a therapist. You can also find Jeanette running in Central Park, cantering at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, volunteering with New York Cares, and constantly giving styling advice.
