Hailing from the land of "Hotdish" & "You betcha", I have proudly built my professional career around where I am from, where I have been, and where I am going.
I kicked it all off in the Twin Cities, after earning my BFA from the University of Minnesota Duluth, by performing & choreographing various productions with: Minneapolis Musical Theatre, Renegade Theatre Company, Play Inc., & HUGE Improv.
Having been taught that as a performer, you are always learning, I decided my next move for my career & education was studying improv & sketch writing at The Second City. I grew up idolizing Carol Burnett, Gilda Radner, and Molly Shannon so stepping into comedy was inevitable. I spent one year in Chicago with the improv scene and performed at several comedy theatres including: The Second City Main-stage (Staff Show), The Playground Theatre, The Corn Theatre, The Annoyance and Gorilla Tango. Chicago was a blast where I made so many of my lifelong friends and creative parters-- but New York called and I took the opportunity to head East.
I have now lived and worked, in New York City for 4 years where I spend my days auditioning and in class at various studios (Heidi Marshall Studio, Jen Waldman Studio, One on One NYC) while my nights are spent bartending for Broadway shows.
Within the past year I have worked on stage with Bryan Cranston, Tony Goldwyn, and Tatiana Maslany in NETWORK as an onstage waitress serving real audience members, started writing and recording my own music with friends, and became a dog-mom to a blue eyed Mini Aussie named Zuzu.
In the near future, I hope to head West to see what is waiting for me in Hollywood.
Here's a taste of that music I mentioned...
