I am an imaginative and joyful professional musical theatre performer with over 15 years paid childcare experience and 5 years experience performing in children's theatre. I have been looking after children for as long as I can remember. I am a big sister to two and aunt to eight! I'm a former lifeguard, camp counselor and neighborhood babysitter. After graduating with a B. F. A. from Ball State University I became a member of New York City Children's Theater. The bulk of my work as a professional actor is in theatre for young audiences. I spent the summer of 2019 touring China with Nickelodeon's Paw Patrol: Live! Race to the Rescue in which I played Zuma. When I'm not on stage I work as a babysitter and teaching artist. I teach kindergarten musical theatre classes and high school playwrighting workshops with several New York theatre companies as well as toddler music exploration classes with New York Kid's Club.
