I earned her BFA in Theatre from Elon University and studied with Bill Esper at The Esper Studio in NYC. I have taught and choreographed all over the the NC area for local high schools, NCT Conservatory, Raleigh Little Theatre and North Raleigh Arts Creative Theatre.
I also work at the Anesthesiology Board of America and Duke University as a Standardized Patient training medical students and professionals in empathy and bedside manner through acting scenarios. Performing professionally all over the Southeast on industrials, local and national commercials, voiceovers, television, independent and feature films, my short film, Oh Crappy Day, was accepted into 38 film festivals, winning the 2015 Lou Costello Award for Best Comedy Short at the Garden State Film Festival.
I act both on stage and screen. I am also available for voice over acting. Please see my resumé for the details of my experience and skills.
I'm excited to share that Oh Crappy Day has been picked up by Gravitas Ventures and is available on Apple TV and Amazon Prime.
Currently choreographing for Xanadu with Teens on Stage at Raleigh Little Theatre and Spongebob the Musical at NRACT in Raleigh, NC.
