My journey in the performing arts began at the age of 10 starting out in a local production of "Annie".
Yes! Just like many other young girls of the 80's-era acting generation!
Over the next eleven years, I would continue to actively perform in leading roles in both straight plays and musicals throughout MA and CT. At the ages of 14 and 19, respectively, I was the proud recipient of awards in local theatre competitions for Best Performance by an Actress for my role in "Artichoke" (dir. Carroll Britch) and Best Performance by a Supporting Actress for my role in "Graceland" (dir. Robert Freedman ). Upon high school graduation, I was granted several arts scholarships for my long-standing presence as a performer and supporter of theatres throughout Western, New England, MA.
While a college student, I continued to increase my abilities to multi-task, playing lead roles in college musicals and as a featured soloist in chorale performances. During this time, I was named one of the countries most talented college students by "Who's Who Amongst College and University Students".
Upon graduating from Bay Path University (AA Arts & Science, Longmeadow, MA), I headed to New York City to study the intensive Meisner Technique at The Neighborhood Playhouse School of Theater. After completing my first year, I was part of a select group accepted as a 2nd year student. During this time I studied with memorable instructors such as Richard Pinter, Ron Stetson, Ian McRae, Gary Kingston and Ron Shetler. After graduation from NPST, I was blessed to work professionally right away and headed out on the National Tour of "To Kill a Mockingbird" in the lead role of "Scout". Following works included leads in independent film, multiple NYC-area theatre roles and TV extra work.
After a successful 18 year career in the corporate world as a marketing, strategy and communications professional, I recently shifted my professional endeavors back to my performing roots on a full-time basis. I split my time between CT and NY and am currently seeking out new projects to work on and professional representation.
My primary focus is to connect in unique, impactful and meaningful ways with audiences, whether it is through the creative arts, social responsibility or corporate focused endeavors.
I love to inspire others through my work and every single day...
