"Jamie Renee Smith is a phenomenal acting teacher and audition coach. Hands down, she has helped transform my career into a working actor. Not only do I study at her studio but I also audition coach whenever possible. Throughout this past year with her, I've booked four amazing TV roles for CBS, ABC and Facebook Watch. I attribute my booking success to her keen teaching skills that keep me sharp for auditions."

"Jamie is a BRILLIANT acting coach. Her experience as an actor herself, her training, and her positive energy make her an unbeatable choice when looking for an acting coach who brings out the best in you. I truly believe that without Jamie’s encouragement and guidance I would not be bold enough to trust my own instincts and make courageous choices- which has brought me the success I have today. Jamie keeps it real with me and uplifts me at the same time. And the best part is that she is also a WORKING ACTOR so she fully gets it. I tell fellow actors if they want to coach with someone who is currently in this business, not an actor who was working 30 years ago, coach with Jamie- your career and confidence will grow. Tried and true!"
-Anjelika Washington, StarGirl, Young Sheldon
