About Excel Academy Excel Academy 1

RENEE FIELD

I am incredibly grateful for your very loving and talented mother, Melissa Moody, for launching Excel School of Modeling, which my mother, Danielle Field, put me in just so I could learn some grace to help with my 13 year old awkwardness. We never thought it would actually turn into anything. Together we partnered and pioneered so much during a time before the internet, digital and cellphones. Summer, you and your mother have carried the school forward to positively impact so many others, and I am honored to have been in the first graduating class!

TAVIA JEFFERSON

Auditioning for Excel literally changed my life! After they gave me a scholarship and took me to IMTA in NYC, I went on to do film, tv, theater and am still making a living as a performer.  Can’t thank them enough for the start!

DANIELLE DAVIS

Excel played an instrumental role in my development as a young actor in film and television. Before moving to LA, Excel equipped me with the knowledge to work with managers and agents, stand out in my casting calls in auditions, and to join the actors unions. Through my training and trips to compete with their teams in New York, I developed a personal relationship with Summer and Melissa. They reminded me that I wasn’t alone in an industry that can sometimes feel isolating. I will never forget their dedication to my acting career and my overall personal development. I’m so grateful for Excel.
