Career

Josie began performing with the Davis Musical Theatre Company before starting kindergarten. As early as 6 years old, Josie started making YouTube videos and entertaining her large family at Thanksgiving dinners. The crowds got bigger, as she went on to book regional and community theater productions of 'Beauty and the Beast' and "Seussical' in and around her hometown of Davis. However, the young actress wanted more and started calling Hollywood agents to introduce herself. She was scouted by casting directors, agents and managers when she performed as a stand-up comedian at the renowned Hollywood Improv. She soon started making appearances on TV shows like Nina Needs to Go, Back in the Game, New Girl, 2 Broke Girls, and most recently Glee.

She had a recurring role for two seasons on the Disney Channel's Jessie, where she played Stuart Wooten. She also appears in national commercials.
