Originally from upstate New York, Emily Sclar received her bachelor's degree in Media/Cultural Studies and Digital Filmmaking from The New School. She spent the second half of her college career interning at a prominent talent management firm and soon realized her true passion of working with actors. After graduating, she assisted in the NY ABC Primetime Casting office helping to cast pilots for several hit shows including "Once Upon a Time," "Revenge," and "Last Man Standing." She also assisted in theatrical casting offices such as Binder Casting and Nora Brennan for the children's casting of "Matilda" on Broadway and the "Billy Elliot" national tour.
Fulfilling her desire to harvest careers, Emily went back to her roots in talent representation. She assisted at Judy Boals Inc. before making the full circle back to management. Emily is thrilled to be working with Josselyne Herman and Associates. JHA prides itself on its integrity, treating fellow staff and clients as family, and guiding clients individually to keep them on personal paths to success -- all values that Emily holds true to her heart. Emily loves discovering new talent and is thankful everyday that she gets to be a part of this crazy business called "show."
Jennifer Sclar is a Manager at JHA, representing actors at every stage in their careers, guiding and advising as well as maximizing opportunities to keep the actors on a path toward success.
Jennifer grew up in Fayetteville, New York, a suburb of Syracuse. Throughout her life she has always carried a strong ardor for entertainment; thoroughly fascinated by the work and the collaboration behind-the-scenes that creates tremendous productions.
After graduating from Syracuse University’s renowned Communications Program, Jennifer relocated to New York City. She began her entertainment career freelancing with stand-up comedians until obtaining a position within the commercial department of Abrams Artists Talent Agency, working directly with the actors on their auditions and bookings.
She then moved on into a position as a publicist, spearheading events and securing press for her clients in many prominent media outlets such as The New York Times, Crain’s New York Business, Time Out and NY1. The experience proved to be invaluable to Jennifer as she made the shift back into talent representation as a manager in 2009. Her clients have performed in many acclaimed venues, including Broadway and The Public, as well as hit TV shows such as “30 Rock," "Boardwalk Empire," "Vinyl" and “Orange is the New Black."
Working as a personal manager has been a dream come true for Jennifer. Her great enjoyment comes from her nurturing approach to her work and clients, helping to build and develop their careers. In 2016, Jennifer was thrilled to join the JHA team alongside her sister, Emily, as a business that prides itself on integrity within a family environment.
Jennifer continues to be excited about her day-to-day work and vows to never lose her enthusiasm for the business.
