Jari holds a BFA in Musical Theatre from NYC’s Pace University, with a concentration in Communication and ASL. She also holds a Masters in Deaf Education (M.Ed.) and Early Childhood Education (MA) from Columbia University.

To expand inclusive opportunities, she launched a fully accessible dance studio coupled with a customized curriculum and led the development of a groundbreaking bone-conductive floor that converts sound into vibrational energy allowing you to feel sound & music. Jari continues to advocate for worldwide accessibility, to open doors that were once closed to marginalized communities.
