About Me


Since making my professional debut with the Santa Fe Opera Children’s Chorus at age 14, I have performed in opera, musical, and dramatic productions in the United States and Canada.


I love performing in a variety of projects, but I’m particularly drawn to period pieces. What can I say? I can’t resist petticoats and a parasol! No surprise that my favorite roles include Rose in The Secret Garden, Judy in Ruthless: The Musical, and Fiametta in The Gondoliers.


Young audiences also hold a special place in my heart. I’m a proud member of the Paramount Story Wranglers, a troupe of professional actors, singers, and improvisers who bring young writers’ stories to life onstage.


In addition to performing, I assistant direct at a private middle school,

co-produce musical theatre concerts and open mic nights with ATX Musical Theatre Collective, and co-lead the international musical theatre group Enter Stage Left on Smule.
