I was born in Chicago IL but raised in a small town in MI known as Three Rivers. I am the daughter of two amazing parents who had their own septic tank business. Looking back; it's probably where I gained a majority of my creativity from. I was able to create obstacle courses out of the over-sized PVC piping and play on the hills of concrete rubble. I also have a brother who is fourteen years older than I am who is a nuclear engineer. I am a proud aunt of 2 and godmother of 3.
I graduated from Three Rivers High School and attended Western Michigan University for two years as a Vocal Performance Major. After having continuous difficulty losing my voice; I shipped off to Northern Illinois University to get my BFA in Acting. While there I worked under two internships at Primary Stages and Oak Park Festival Theatre and studied for three months at MXAT in Moscow Russia. I graduated as an Honors Student and earned Summa Cum Laude.
Directly out of college I was hired at Timber Lake Playhouse as a House Manager which quickly became a role that involved event planning, marketing, and acting. I have now relocated to my birth city Chicago, and boy am I happy to be back!
Now you can find me working in and around the Chicago Theatre and Film Scene. I am represented by Dream Team Talent Chicago, Dream Team Talent LA and Dream Team Atlanta. While in Chicago I have continued my studies at Actors Gymnasium, Acting Studio Chicago, Forge, Voice Revolution, Green Room, Gabriel Marroquin Stunts and Ballroom Dance Chicago.
I enjoy swing dancing, singing, sailing, stage combat, hula hooping, roller skating and trying all the great restaurants in Chicago!
