Born Jeanette Willis, she is a member of the expansive Willis clan, starring alongside her parents, Toby and Brenda, and her eleven siblings on the TLC reality show The Willis Family.
At birth, she was paralyzed in one arm. However, she has since gained back a great deal of movement in her arm and thus it is not noticed in her dance performances.
Like her sisters, she is a talented dancer, skilled in Irish, ballroom, swing, and flamenco.
Although born on the south side of Chicago; she and her siblings moved to Nashville in 2001. She is one of eight sisters, the third oldest of the girls Jessica, Jennifer, Jasmine, Juliette, Jamie, Joy-Anna, and Jada. She has four brothers, Jeremiah, Jedidiah, Jackson, and Jaeger.
She and the rest of the Willis family competed against Mat Franco on the ninth season of America's Got Talent.
