Katie Welsh started improv to work on her skills as a stand up comedian and in the process, became passionate about the art form. She improvises on two Reno Improv teams, the house team, Kill Joy Diffuser and All Things Reconsidered.

Jesi Wicks is one of the newest members of Reno Improv. She is a local creative, a mama, an actor, and an improviser. As a military brat, she witnessed many diverse cultures within the US, and consequently has a passion for perspective work on the stage. Jesi was always meant to do improv even before she discovered it. As a relentless extrovert, improv gives her energy and the freedom to be herself around people who accept and love her.
