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 career that ever seemed to make sense. Growing up, I gave countless recitals on the landing of the staircase, and “walked the runway” of the hallway, while my dad held a flashlight as a spotlight.
Fortunately, I’ve graduated from the venue of my childhood home to perform on stages across America, and Europe, but don’t worry; I didn’t get rid of that childlike joy. I enjoy performing in all of its’ forms: musicals, plays, operas, recitals, concerts, film, etc. Some of my favorite roles include Nellie Forbush in SOUTH PACIFIC, John Webster in SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE, Lily St. Regis in ANNIE, and Despina in COSI FAN TUTTE.
My other passion has always been gymnastics. I began training at 18 months old, and grew up as a competitive gymnast, frequently taking winning titles on Floor Exercise. I’m still an active gymnast, training and coaching a USAG competitive team, and thrive on incorporating gymnastics into my life as a performer.
I am a proud Temple University alumna, which is where I fell in love with Philadelphia in the first place. After living in Manhattan for a few years, I decided Philly is truly “home,” and the commute for auditions and work is so worth it.
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 full-time. Visit my Voice & Acting or Gymnastics & Fitness page to learn more!
During the Covid-19 pandemic, I founded, and launched The Simply Enough Project a body-neutral 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!
