I am currently having a blast on set with Candid Life Entertainment portraying Kathryn in Adam's short film, "Theatre Four". 

Last month, I finished filming "Continuity" in March, playing the lead, by writer & director Sarah Bask in Vancouver. I was also on set for an exciting TBA project!

ABOUT
ME!

I am often described as sweet with a bite.  And I agree. Thanks for stopping by! I’m an NYC and Vancouver, BC-based actress and artist that was born in the small town of Newton Falls, Ohio where the only thing we are known for is a zip code of 44444. I have trouble memorizing new zip codes (but not lines).

 

My deep love of Anastasia and musicals blossomed into a passion for film, acting and dance. I received a BFA in Musical Theater from Belmont University, and moved to NYC post-graduation to pursue a professional career in film and dance.

      I enjoyed performing in the premiere Grand Ole Opry cast of How the Grinch Stole Christmas the Musical as Punky/Reno, regional equity houses around the country, and performing on Disney Cruise lines as the female swing! Highlight of my musical theater career was touring with the National Tour of A Chorus Line, working with Baayork Lee, performing the roles of Vicki, Cassie, and Val. 

     Also passionate about fitness and injury-prevention, I completed my comprehensive pilates certification in New York City, later becoming an ACE Certified Personal Trainer, VXN Dance Instructor, bodyART instructor, and Melt Method body worker. When not on stage or set, I help others work through traumatic injuries and get their dream bodies.

 

       From the creative side, I choreographed Chicago for the Millennial Theater Company, winning a Broadway World Award for best choregraphy in 2019. 

 

I received my equity card as a performer, associate choreographer, and dance captain for Shrek the Musical at the Beck Center for the Arts. 

 

Currently, I reside in NYC with my partner, training clients at Mai-TY Fitness Inc in-person and online, working on film & television and dancing in NYC, and surfing on the weekends in the Rockaway's. We frequently travel to Vancouver for family and film. 

 

I'm super passionate about sustainability and the environment! Let's create more sustainable film sets, cool?
