Formerly a singer in rock and roll & alternative rock bands in the Midwest, I was also an equestrian who was blessed to have my first horse when I was 11 years old (a huge thanks to Mom and Dad).  Riding almost became my profession, but world travels and a life in the arts called louder. 

Antsy for success as a rock singer, I decided to audition for a role in “The Elephant Man” and was cast as Nurse Sandwich by Len Kluge, Danny DeVito’s former roommate and Obie Award winner for his performance with Mr. DeVito in “The Man with the Flower in His Mouth”. I fell wildly, madly in love with acting and the magical synergy that occurs when a group of artists join forces to create theater.  

After being cast in several more plays, I moved from the Midwest to New York City to take a deep dive into the craft of acting.  Since this fateful leap to the Big Apple, I have performed in numerous film, television and theatrical productions, as well as commercials.  

Recent credits include the NETFLIX film “The After Party”, with Blair Underwood and the rapper KYLE, where I played the mother to the lead (KYLE).  I also had a lead role in the short film “Heavy Feathers”, which enjoyed a U.S. and international film festival run, winning “#1 Short” in a women’s festival in South Africa.  Theatrically, I had the immense honor of being cast in the award-winning play “The Exonerated” by Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen in the role of real-life death row exoneree “Sunny Jacobs”. 


Determined to make my dream of taking an East African safari a reality, I am learning Swahili.  Karibu nyumbani…Welcome to my home : )
