Originally from Texas, I call New York home now--however, the roots never leave the girl. Chips and salsa are a staple in my house! Easy going and with a genuine interest in people, I have been fortunate to find my way as an actress, a teacher, and a producer. Every now and then, I direct as well. What interests me most is people and their stories and clear, exciting ways to tell them. In the pursuit of this, for the past 15+ years, I've had the privilege of working on stage and in film. I work on contemporary or classical works. Often brand new works. I'm always up for a challenge. I teach Voice and Speech, American Accent Acquisition, and sometimes Acting. I often do voice/dialect coaching for plays. I also have found my way into administrative work--serve as Director of Teen Conservatory at The Stella Adler Studio of Acting and in the past as the Associate Education Director for Powerhouse Apprentice Program with New York Stage and Film @ Vassar College. Serve as founding member and Associate Artistic Director of Theatre East.
