about me 

Chicago, Illinois is my birthplace (and one of the best cities in the world), but I must say I grew up in the ever-chilly state of Minnesota. Go Vikings! No, seriously.

I'm proud to say I eventually made the jump to Los Angeles for a stint at film & TV, training with coaches like Amy Lyndon, Ivana Chubbuck, Will Wallace, The Actor Corps...and worked with some amazing professionals including alongside Oscar Nominee Anna Kendrick, Jon Gries, Paul Wesley, and Director Jeff Kanew to name a few!

All the while I completed my BA in Art History & Visual Media from Occidental College. Yes, that major is as broad as it sounds. After 8 years in Los Angeles, it was time to move from the sun and I took the leap to New York to try my hand at real public transportation. Without wanting to bore anyone TOO much, this is the point where a few of my years were spent attending law school, living briefly in Ireland, receiving a certificate in broadcasting, working as a news producer for RNN before moving (back) to Minnesota to work 2 years as an on-air journalist/weekend news anchor for an ABC News affiliate.

(I also met my handsome husband and cat Sherlock!)

Whew! I told you it was a maze. But as soon as I married my husband, I told him what he already knew: Wherever we landed, I wanted to go back to my acting career. And here we are!
