"The greatest prize that life has to offer is to work hard at work worth doing."

About Me...

Born in Des Moines, IA.... Raised in Manasas, VA....

Grown in Reno, NV.... Living in Los Angeles, CA.

I am a professional director, production stage manager, and teaching artist for theatre in the greater Los Angeles area.  I have been living in LA for going on nine years and feel lucky to be living in such a vibrant artistic community.  I love to work and create here. 

I am excited to say that in May my husband and I welcomed our first child, Sarah Rose, into the world. We are beyond thrilled to have a beautiful baby girl to add to our loving family. Currently I am continuing my resident stage manager position at 24TH ST Theatre. We serve over 250,000 children each year in arts education and am thrilled to be a part of their team again. I am also returning to UCLA, Theatre department stage managing both MFA Thesis Directing projects acting as a professional mentor and contact for grad and under-graduate students. I am always continuing to find other projects around LA, including taking on private students for acting and voice lessons.

When I'm not working I am eating brunch, singing karaoke, raising money for the LA Phil, cheering for the The Lakers and The Packers, watching other people create theatre, and spending time with my family.
