Jād has also been singing and acting for stage since she was 4-years-old. She graduated summa cum laude from Texas Wesleyan University with a Bachelor of Arts, Music (vocal performance) in 2005.
When Jād isn’t voicing toons, she can be seen playing on stage at various theaters throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth region. Jād loves the wisdom and wit of Dr. Seuss and A.A. Milene, the melodic fantasy of The Beatles, tattoos (though she only has 3 – one is a Beatles lyric), the majesty of whales, gnomes, pandas, Adventure Time, foxes, dinosaurs, and above all – anything Harry Potter related (she even named her cat Granger aka Grangie-the-poof)!
