Carshenah W. Jefferson was born in Gainesville, but raised in Jacksonville, Florida. Her southern roots cultivated her talents and brought out a genuine southern belle who dreamed of making it big. This rambunctious young lady was always considered the class clown and the most likely to succeed in whatever it is she was doing. As an only child, Carshenah found acting as her number one outlet to be her biggest blessing. Gifted in a variety of athletics, dancing, music, linguistics and computers, acting was her first love. She put all of her talents to use. In her last year of undergraduate studies at Florida State University, Carshenah studied abroad in Florence, Italy, which changed her view of performance theatre on a global stage.

Carshenah returned back home to do community theatre, but New York had called yet again. This time, Carshenah was blessed with a coveted acting job on Broadway with the New York touring company TheatreWorks USA for a dual role of Marion Carter and Jane for the show, “The Color of Justice.” Carshenah landed this role on her very first major audition out in New York.
