​Hi there!

I'm an actor and theatre administrator born and raised in Texas-  but am currently putting down some solid roots in Chicago.



I moved to Chicago over 9 years ago, and since then I've learned what a -45 degree wind chill feels like, met my (now) husband and made a pretty perfect baby girl. Truthfully, I love it here more than I could have ever imagined.

I'm currently the Managing Director at The New Colony and have been fortunate enough to work as an actor with numerous theatres in Chicago, Oklahoma and Texas. My previous work behind the scenes includes Company Manager and Casting Director of Halcyon Theatre. I've got my fancy BFA in Acting from The University of Oklahoma and am a graduate of iO Improv in Chicago. I'm an animal enthusiast, sports fan, and Star Wars nerd who also enjoys new play development but I've got a soft spot for Shakespeare. I hope to continue learning and helping to create more opportunities in the theatre for under-represented communities. 

 

When I'm not working, rehearsing or performing (when is that again?!), I love hanging with my family (including my kitties), catching up on TV or movies, and tons of carbohydrates. For more up to date information on projects, feel free to visit my Facebook page. 



Thanks for taking the time to visit my website!
