She studied clown with teachers from around the world including, Philippe Gaulier. She dove deep into the art of improv with the ensemble The Reckoning and the show Adsit & Eveleth. She toured Europe performing and teaching with The Second City and the US Embassy. She was faculty at The Second City Conservatory and was the former artistic director of the Chicago Improv Festival. She also taught at Columbia College where she earned her Masters in Interdisciplinary Arts.
Jet began her meditation and yoga practice in 1999. She has since earned certifications in six styles, with a focus on Taoist and Tantric yoga. Jet most recently studied breathwork, meditation and cold immersion with the “Ice Man” Wim Hof in northern Spain. She has also worked directly with Eckhart Tolle at his School of the Awakenings program.
Jet studies alternative medicine at Alhambra Medical University. She is the creator of Clown Church and theatrical clown troupe The Electric House.
What's your zone of genius?
I value freedom and my gift is in freeing people to go to the places they already want to go to. I’m not teaching, I’m creating space. Most people will always choose laughter, I show them where it resides.
How's your love life?
Beautiful. Dumb. Beautiful.
Why do you do what you do?
Laughter is the sweetest sound to me so I always follow it. It has led me around the world and to the strangest places inside myself. I like to share what I’ve learned and to be a guide to those who have the same fascination.
