Jessie Fahay is a New York based actress, public speaker, singer, producer, and published playwright who is out to make a difference with her writings, performances, and workshops. Born and raised on the Jersey Shore, she grew up constantly researching and questioning human behavior through her studies in theatre, eastern philosophy, and a multitude of performing and writing methods. She is currently pursuing her MBA from Capella University. She is the proud founder of the performing arts company, Ripple Effect Productions, which in the spring of 2010 put on a fundraiser to empower six different charter schools’ creative arts programs. This benefit featured the performances of many comedians, Broadway singers, touring singers, and independent musicians. In January, 2011 Ripple Effect Productions put on William Shakespeare’s “Taming of the Shrew,” that asked the question, “How far has our view of women really progressed?” This production provided funds for a cutting-edge New York feminist group, Paradigm Shift (www.paradigmshiftnyc.org).
