long story short...
Raised on the coast of Massachusetts, I grew up surrounded by salt air, good books, and the echoes of history. I would devour the stories of valiant women, from Jo March to Joan of Arc to C.J. Cregg, which inspired me to embody such characters onstage. I quickly became a full-fledged theatre kid and pursued my BFA in Acting at Point Park University. In Pittsburgh I broadened my artistic horizons and found my passions for Shakespeare, musical theatre, screen acting, and playwriting. I also discovered my calling in Linklater voice work, which taught me how the human voice reveals our most personal stories and reflects our greater social structures.
After graduation I moved to New York City, where I spent three years working in theatre, national commercials, film, voiceover, dialect coaching, dramaturgy, podcast producing, casting, children's education--anything I could get my hands on! I also became an active member of Ring of Keys, an arts advocacy organization that fosters community and visibility of queer women, gender non-conforming, and transgender theatre artists.
I recently moved to Boston to pursue my MFA in Theatre Education + Applied Theatre at Emerson College, where I'll use my training to tell meaningful stories of underrepresented identities, engage with my community, and teach others to free their voices.
