Jaya began acting in theatre as a child, but fell in love with the camera when she was introduced to modeling as a teenager. After graduating from UC San Diego, she moved to San Francisco and worked in tech. As an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at a startup incubator, she created and launched one of the first mobile social networking apps for kids. Having continued to appear in commercials and films, Jaya switched to acting full-time in 2014 and moved to New York to study at the Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute. She now divides her time between LA and New York.
