Exploring the world one joke and one soliloquy at a time. 

Hello, welcome to my office!
Come on in, and make yourself comfortable. 

I grew up in Chicago, and my main goal in life was to become Lucile Ball. So, after watching 100 straight hours of I Love Lucy, I knew I had to study theater. I got a BFA in Musical Theater from the Sargent Conservatory of Theater Arts at Webster University. I fostered my love for musical theater and discovered a new joy in other theater styles. My passion for the classics and comedy lead me to Shakespeare. I am currently in my 3rd season at Cincinnati Shakespeare Company. I am also the Education Associate at Cincinnati Shakespeare and am passionate about teaching learners of all ages.


I'm looking forward to what lies ahead in this crazy mortal coil!
