Jan Morris is what some might call a Renaissance Woman, a Jan of all trades, master of none. She’s a singer/songwriter who has performed professionally, an actor who has appeared as a featured extra in The Cider House Rules. She was once published in Seventeen magazine, and has more recently written for and performed in comical murder mystery dinner theater where she met the love of her life. She is also a writer and performer of comical song parodies through her alter-ego, Melinda Marie. And, to add to her resume, she is a caring, serious, and sometimes humorous officiant who loves to witness the joining of souls in marriage.
A crafter at heart, she thrives on decoupage and creating decorative light switch plates, as well as, refurbishing old, worn out furniture. Her light switch plates can be found in Greenfield, MA at Innovintage Place, 76 Hope St., a fun and eclectic shop filled with antiques and handcrafts.
She went back to school late in life thanks to the Ada Comstock program at Smith College in Northampton, MA. She is on track to receive her bachelor’s degree there in December, 2019, in Creative Writing w/ an emphasis in theatre.
She is passionate about studying resources for maintaining one’s health in mind/body/spirit, and specifically, is interested in the psychological and emotional origins of physical ill-health.
