ABOUT

Hi Folks!

I'm an LA-based actress, former pro ballroom dancer, and midwestern mom of 3 working in TV, film, and theater. I believe that everything we need is already inside of us. We spend so much time looking for answers out there, but it’s our willingness to dig deep, walk into the fire and face our true feelings that gives us the power to transform ourselves and by extension, everything around us. That’s why I love acting, because it’s a powerful tool for self-discovery and change.  

Some of my favorite acting projects include playing the entitled mother in John Mulaney's comedy special Everybody's In LA (Netflix);  Megan, the new age PTA mom in the comedy series C'est La Vie (Vinci Prod.); Jenny, a virgin high school teacher trying to navigate dating in the digital world in the award-winning comedy series Digital Affairs (LucidLev Prod.); and Lola, the haunted widow in the film Billy Ghost (Aesthetic Rebellion). Films I've starred in have been screened and won top awards at the IndieX Film Festival and Festigious Film Festival, LA Underground Film Forum, and Fortean Film Festival, to name a few. I also co-executive produced Freud's Last Session, starring Anthony Hopkins and Matthew Goode. 

 

Prior to acting, I was a professional ballroom dancer, ranking as a U.S. semi-finalist (wahoo!) all while creating 3 hilarious humans whom I named Elora, Emery, and Ezra. Being a mama and a working artist is an incredible challenge, and also an incredible gift. My family gives me strength. And, my kids are also the best sources of comedic material an actress could ever ask for!
