Jan Wikstrom is a teaching actor and coach who currently heads the vocal program and collaborates in the acting concentration at Kennesaw State University. Having served on the faculties of Millikin University and the University of Florida as well, her professional acting credits include appearances at such venues as the Manhattan Theatre Club, the Hippodrome State Theatre, Orlando Shakespeare Theatre, and the George Street Playhouse. Roles include Nora in A Doll’s House, the title role in Candida, Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing, and Vivian in Wit. Jan's extensive experience with high school students (which has earned the Presidential Scholars Program Teacher Recognition Award and nine National Foundation for the Arts Awards) led her to create workshops and curricula adapting Fitzmaurice Voicework for young people. Jan's interests include the work of Uta Hagen, with whom Jan studied for many years, the Alexander Technique and Yoga, both of which Jan is certified to teach.
