BIO

Janet Conroy-Quirk was born in Manhattan and raised in the Riverdale section of the Bronx, as well as in Central Massachusetts. She graduated from Fordham University at Rose Hill with a BA in Communications. Janet then began a career in social services and obtained her MSW degree from Hunter College. Throughout Janet’s social work career, she served populations ranging from the homeless to older adults, and believes strongly that every story she heard and person she met has helped her to understand life experiences and bring genuine emotion to her performances. In addition to stage and film work, Janet is active in the body positivity/plus culture movements and works with an organization called Realize Your Beauty, which focuses on the empowerment of young people through theatre arts. She lives in Manhattan with her husband, Terry, and their photogenic (but neurotic) cat, EmmyLou.
