Hi! I’m an actor, voice over artist, teacher, and mother. I worked with John Patrick in 2011 and was mentored by Scott, hosted in part at the Graduate Acting Program at NYU | Tisch School of the Arts. I teach Speech at Atlantic Acting School and I’m a proud member of SAG/AFTRA & AEA. This work profoundly affected my life as an actor, teacher and human being by keeping me ever curious about breath, perceptions, our brains and this job we call acting. You can hear me on radio for Home Goods, on TV for Cetaphil and KY (yes, the lube!) and in the audio book A Tangle of Knots by Lisa Graff.
