About Me

I tell epic stories about epic women, on stage and the page. After growing up in a small sleepy town in southwest Oklahoma, I went to college at William Jewell in Kansas City, Missouri. Go Royals! Then I was able to make the journey abroad to attend Oxford University and grad school at the Birmingham School of Acting. I now call Cincinnati home where I've been a resident actor at the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company for ten seasons. I've also been fortunate enough to perform with other companies such as Know Theatre of Cincinnati, Human Race Theatre Company, StageOne, Birmingham Old Rep, Kentucky Shakespeare, and Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park. 

I'm also a passionate educator, produced playwright, and lover intersectional feminism, tacos, and The Golden Girls.

I'm thrilled to have made a home in a city where I can water my garden 20 minutes before going to work in my booming city center. Look around, be in touch, let's make some art together.
