ABOUT

Hi there! I’m an Atlanta-based actor, singer, and dancer with over 30 years of professional experience.

I was born in New York and raised in Atlanta as the youngest of four girls. My love for performing started at a young age because it “lit me up” and – let’s be honest – it was a surefire way to capture my family’s attention. This love of drama grew into a lifelong passion for storytelling – I was hooked after my debut performance as a toy soldier in Atlanta Ballet’s The Nutcracker when I was eight.

After graduating from Yale with a B.A. in Theatre Studies, I went on to make my Broadway debut in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, understudying and performing the principal role of Hedy La Rue alongside Matthew Broderick. I also appeared in the Broadway revival of Once Upon a Mattress with Sarah Jessica Parker.

Throughout my career, I’ve performed throughout the US in national tours of A Chorus Line and Ziegfeld: A Night at the Follies, as well as in regional theaters including The Kennedy Center, Goodspeed Opera House, The Old Globe Theatre, and The Alliance Theatre. Recently, I’ve been acting in television and film in the Southeast and diving into voiceover work and audiobook narration – I’m always excited to discover new ways of storytelling!

When I’m not on stage, on set, or behind a microphone, you can find me teaching the next generation of aspiring artists in the classroom or dance studio. I love sharing my passion for the arts and I’m always excited to learn something new. I continue to hone my skills in on-camera and audition techniques as well as improv comedy in Atlanta.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling and experiencing new cultures. My motto for good health and self-care is “just keep moving … and remember to breathe!”  Above all, family is everything to me – my husband and I have three children, and they are my proudest productions!
