LA native Jade Pettyjohn began her professional career at the age of seven when she booked a guest starring role on the CBS hit show ‘The Mentalist’ followed by a recurring role in Steven Spielberg’s ‘United States of Tara’. Since then she has gone on to book major guest starring roles in television's top shows such as, ‘Criminal Minds’, JJ Abrahams series ‘Revolution’ and Michael Bay’s series ‘The Last Ship’ and most recently ‘Pure Genius’.
Jade has worked with Academy Nominated director and actor Kenneth Branagh in the film ‘Prodigal’; starring as McKenna in the American Girl franchise film ‘McKenna Shoots for the Stars’; and the lead role of Bird in the gritty and groundbreaking independent film ‘Girl Flu.’
Jade is a singer/songwriter and a huge music fan. So it was only fitting that she would play Summer in Paramount and Nickelodeon’s ‘School of Rock’ which recently received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Children’s Programming.
