hey! Thanks for stopping by!

I'm Jazzy Ellis

[My pronouns are she/her(s), and I prefer gender-neutral terms to describe my career.]

I am a SAG Award-winning stunt actor, intimacy coordinator, theatre & film educator, and founder of Stunt Sistah. After a decade in the entertainment industry and with credits in over 75 films and TV shows, my goal is to help others improve their craft and guide them on their journeys as pre-professional artists and entertainers.

When I'm not performing, teaching, coordinating, or consulting, I plan creative and immersive international adventure
retreats for women of all ages and backgrounds to practice courage and cross off exciting bucket list items. In leading by example, I wish to inspire ambitious women from all walks of life to pursue their wildest dreams and seek their most exciting adventures.
