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.
