Equal rights for women and girls

Her TV appearances include Comedy Central's Key and Peele, WHY? with Hannibal Buress, E's Chelsea Lately, and the semi-finals of NBC's Last Comic Standing season 8 with (you guessed it) Roseanne Barr as of the judges calling her “A star.” In 2015, she was then hired as a supervising producer to 'stylist to the stars', Rachel Zoe for her background in high fashion commentary and vintage consignment. Rachel's live talk show, "Fashionably Late" appeared on Lifetime with guests Reese Witherspoon, Eva Longoria, Nicole Richie and more. This was an outstanding feat for JC as fashion and comedy are finally getting the nods they deserve in this revolution of women’s equality. Soon after, she was brought on as a Producer for the FOX and HULU smash hit, PAGE SIX TV which followed culture, celebrities and their glamorous life styles.
