KARISSA WHEELER is a Nashville and New York-based actor with a passion for using her gifts to tell stories of redemption that inspire lives. Graduating magna cum laude from Sewanee: The University of the South with a BA in Theatre (Honors), a BA in English, and a minor in Dance, Karissa moved to New York City to continue acting training at Michael Howard Studios in Manhattan. There, she was blessed to find a community of believers through The Hang NYC, a ministry for artists in the City, who not only encouraged her artistically but also spiritually.
Karissa loves exploring the intersection of her identity as a Christ-follower and as an artist, analyzing how artistry can be used as a ministry. Ultimately, she hopes that the stories she brings to life can be used to bless other people and bring glory to God, the greatest artist of all!
