Bio

Joanna Garcia is an American actress best known for television roles as Cheyenne Hart-Montgomery on Reba (2001-2007) and as Megan Smith, a Yale graduate who tutors wealthy twin sisters, on Privileged, from 2008-2009.

She also starred as Mia Putney in the sitcom Better with You (2010-2011) and as Dorothy Rutledge in Animal Practice, in 2012.

Born and raised in Tampa, Florida, Garcia first started performing at the age of 10 when she auditioned for a local theatre production and landed the lead.

While she caught the bug immediately, her parents put school first and she continued to feed her passion by acting in local plays.

While in high school, Garcia was discovered by Nickelodeon and commuted from Florida to Montreal, Canada to star for two seasons in the television series Are You Afraid Of The Dark?

After graduating from high school she spent a year attending Florida State University, but Hollywood was calling. She moved to Los Angeles and, the day she arrived, landed a role in the television movie Holy Joe.

Soon after, she was cast in a recurring role on the acclaimed drama series Party Of Five, playing Claudia's (Lacy Chabert) friend at boarding school.

She also had a recurring role on Freaks And Geeks, playing Vicki Appleby, the popular freshman cheerleader who spent seven minutes in heaven with the ultimate geek, Bill (Martin Starr).

She guest-starred on Boston Public, in an episode in which her character was caught giving oral sex in the school hallway to sway a student election.

She has also appeared on Family Law, Providence, Dawson's Creek and, while guest-starring on Opposite Sex, became close friends with Allison Mack, who now stars on The WB's Smallville.

On the big screen, Garcia was seen in the feature comedy sequel American Pie 2 and the comedy spoof Not Another Teen Movie.

She has also appeared in the original television movies From The Earth To The Moon and Love's Deadly Triangle: The Texas Cadet Murder.

When she's not working, Garcia volunteers teaching English as a second language to pre-school-aged children in Los Angeles.
