Genna is, as they say, “Born to Entertain.” As the story goes, she was singing before she could talk, dancing before she could walk and acting along with her favourite movies since age 3. With her family’s support, she was fortunate enough to follow her dreams, and do what she loves every day.
Genna graduated from the Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts, located in Toronto, Ontario, in 2011. Since then, she has been working as a professional Singer/Actor/Dancer (Triple Threat) with various performance credits, both leading and supporting, all-over North America. Some of her recent credits and accomplishments include the roles of Belle in Beauty and the Beast and Janet in The Rocky Horror Show, winning ‘Female Singer of the Year’ at IMTA New York, and filming her first on-screen speaking role in the feature film, Thank you for Bombing, which had it's world premiere at TIFF 2015. She recently filmed her first television role on Murdoch Mysteries.
Over the years, she also worked as a model and was co-Artistic Associate of neXt Company Theatre. Genna enjoys partnering with her fellow Performing Artists'; producing and creating entertainment of all kinds from cabarets, event entertainment, concerts and full-length musicals. She hopes to one day open her own unique venue/performance space . She is always looking for new performance opportunities, venues, and professionals to create and perform with. If you are interested in working with her, please do not hesitate to contact Genna.
Along with her own personal goals in the industry, she wants to continue giving back for the gifts and opportunities given in her own career, by teaching. Teaching, inspiring children, youth, adults and professionals is something she cherishes and always wants as a part of her life. Along with performing, it is her way of giving back for the gifts and opportunites in her life.
