All About Jaimi

 

Jaimi McPeek was born in Port Charlotte, Florida and currently resides in Sarasota, Florida. She started dancing when she was 5 years old and instantly fell in love with it. By the time she was 10, she knew she wanted to pursue a professional track, so she started taking lessons with professionals in the industry. At age 13, she decided to try musical theatre and landed her first leading role at age 14. She completely fell in love with the whole aspect of being a triple threat, as she adored dancing while acting and singing. She loved the story it told and being able to bring that story to life all while making people smile. At age 15, she got into her first broadway season show that had sold out crowds every single night. That was a feeling she cannot forget. When she was 16, she decided to take film acting classes just to give it a try. Little did she know that film acting would become her whole life. It was a release, a passion, a craft, and a whole new world all in one. She was torn for a while whether or not she wanted to pursue being in a dance company or go into the film acting world. However at age 17,  that decision became very clear to her when she got on her first film set and loved it more than words could ever describe. After that, she kept auditioning and kept booking more work. Although she knows that film acting is her calling, she continues to practice dance every single day.  She also continues taking singing lessons and sometimes will sing live at restaurants. She models and has been published in 4 magazines up to date. Jaimi is passionate about performing and can't imagine doing anything else with her life. She currently works in the following five capacities: film-acting, stage-acting, dancing, singing, and modeling. She won't stop until she is able to look back and say "I made it".

I don’t just want to take a picture, dance a dance, or star in a movie. I want to make an impact, I want to inspire people, to leave my mark on this world.
