Thanks for coming to my website! I am an actress, singer, and performer. You might have seen me hopping stages as Frau Blucher, Lady of the Lake, Little Edie, or Patsy Cline. Perhaps you spotted me on TV hocking Nissans, in the 34 West Films short Love Potion, or singing in cabarets.
Born a Georgia peach and raised in Northern Virginia and South Carolina, my childhood was full of dreams of being an Olympic swimmer, professional ballerina, concert pianist, and going to the top of the Eiffel Tower. I made it to the Junior-Olympics in the 50-meter breaststroke and spent my days as an All-Star springboard diver, soccer, baseball, basketball, tennis, All-State softball player, choral singer, actress, pianist, and ballerina.
With a love of travel, I studied Arts & Literature abroad in Amersfoort, Netherlands, Caen & Montpellier, France and London, England. I began my professional actor's training at the prestigious SCGSA studying Drama under some of the world's leading teachers, including Bob Francesconi, Barry Kur, Marilyn McIntyre, and Mollie Murray, with emphasis on both the Stanislavski and Meisner Techniques, mask and movement, alignment, and voice. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre and French at College of Charleston (Robert Ivey, Maida Libkin, Joy Vandervort-Cobb), and later, studied Music Theatre at New York University with Bill Wesbrooks followed by a Masters in Performance at Savannah College of Art & Design with Andrew Levine and Bruce Roach.
After a stint in New York City working with Sweet William Collective on Ron Fitzgerald's Parts Unknown, being on set with Glenn Close (!), working at the legendary Colony Records, and spending all my money on Broadway shows, I eventually made my way back to Charleston, SC. I spent several years in the music industry working in sales & education getting to live my 80's rocker fantasies at NAMM and serving as a VH1 Save the Music liaison. I now work as an Actress/Singer/Performer and am honored to have been 3-time CCP Best Local Actress, 2-time received the Theatre Charleston Outstanding Lead Actress in a Musical award, and selected as Theatre Charleston's People's Choice.
I love stepping into someone else's shoes and sharing in the universal emotions of human connection. When I'm not performing, you can find me working on my mean Pez collection, crashing French Bulldog meetups, and always loving Dan "The Man".
Hope to see you at a show!
