I am a classically-trained soprano, actor, and gymnast hailing from Albany, NY, and now based in Philadelphia. I graduated from Temple University in 2017 with my Bachelors of Music in Classical Vocal Performance. I am equally as passionate about theatre, and have had the pleasure of studying acting with Brandon McShaffrey and Julie Czarnecki, musical theatre with Jeff Coon, and dance through the Boyer College (GO OWLS!) I am a current acting student of Ben Mathes and Crash Acting.
After living and working in Manhattan for a few years, I decided my heart was in Philly, and made the move back down to the City of Brotherly love during the Covid-19 pandemic. I still bounce back and forth for gigs and auditions!
My mom always told me, "find what you love to do, and figure out a way to get paid for it," so becoming a professional performer was the only thing that ever seemed to fit. I have performed on stages all over the United States, Canada, and Italy- in musicals, plays, operas, recitals, concerts, and on film. Some of my favorite roles include Nellie Forbush in SOUTH PACIFIC, John Webster in SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE, and Despina in COSI FAN TUTTE.
In addition to the arts, my other passion has always been gymnastics. I began my training when I was two years old at D.C. Gymnastics, and moved on to compete and coach at New York State's World Class Gymnastics Academy, frequently taking winning titles on Floor Exercise. I trained many summers at the International Gymnastics Camp with olympians Shawn Johnson, Nastia Liukin, and Svetlana Boguinskaia. In college, I competed for Temple's Club Gymnastics Team, and thrive on incorporating gymnastics into my life as a performer.
When I am not performing, I teach my Philly, NYC, and online voice and acting students, instruct fitness classes, and coach a competitive gymnastics team. Visit my Voice & Acting or Gymnastics & Fitness page to learn more!
During the Covid-19 pandemic, I founded, and launched The Simply Enough Project an environment demonstrating that fitness is achievable for every body and looks different in every body. I am also a kindness advocate in the Spreading Kindness Rocks Movement. Visit those pages on my site for more details!
