From a blog post (originally on M&J) re-posted on Ms. In The Biz




Meeshelle has attended workshops such as the Storyhive & CWWA Career Accelerator Program and the WIDC Career Advancement Module as well as the Story & Leadership intensive. She is mentored by Gary Harvey and recently finished her third narrative short and is in development on her first feature, both by the same name, SWEET RELEASE.

BOTH short films she directed last year premiered at the Covellite International Film Festival (2018) with CHECK taking home a Best Short award.



Meesh has multiple TV series and features optioned as well as poems and short stories published. Her debut novella BETWIXT can be found on Amazon (there is a feature film script already attached). Her second novella BETWIXT: THE CALL OF THE VOID is currently available for pre-order.

Meesh’s past blog posts can be found on the M&J website. The posts that end with ~M were written by her (with input from Jax) and visa versa the ones ending in ~J were written by Jax (with input from Meesh).

Together they were co-heads of Creative Services for JBA.




Leo nominated, Meeshelle enjoys being a highly proactive member of the Vancouver Film & TV community both in front of and behind the scenes.

She is proud to have served a full term on the board for WIFTV.
