I grew up in College Station and started taking dance classes at the age of 3. Throughout my childhood, I continued training in a variety of dance styles (including ballet, tap, and pointe) as well as music and choral singing. Upon seeing my first play (A Twelfth Night) I fell in love with theatre, and that was that! I spent the remainder of my schooling balancing dance, choir, and theatre activities, earning honors including Best Actress (Puck in Midsummer Night's Dream) at a U.I.L. One Act Regional competition and a spot in the advanced company at my dance studio. I then went on to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Musical Theatre from Sam Houston State University.
During my time at Sam Houston, I was fortunate enough to be cast in a show every semester. My credits include Lola (Damn Yankees directed by Greg Graham), Sally Bowles (Cabaret), Columbia (The Rocky Horror Show directed by Greg Graham), Hope (Urinetown), CB's Sister (Dog Sees God), and Anna (Spring Awakening directed by Greg Graham).
Some of my other favorite credits include: Mary Lane (Reefer Madness) with TUTS, Pippi Longstocking (North American premiere) with Main Street Theatre for Youth, Penny (Hairspray), and Cinderella (Cinderella).
Additionally, I attended The Performing Arts Project as a student, and was then asked to return as an artistic intern for two consecutive years, including my final year where I was awarded the Bubby Fellowship. Through TPAP, I have had the privilege to work with industry professionals like Gavin Creel, Cameron Adams, Susan Blackwell, Deidre Goodwin, Ryan Kasprzak, Susan Misner, Mary Ann Lamb, Jessica Patty, Jessica Bedford, Dave Clemmons, Nick Blaemire, Nikole Vallins, Mary Mitchell Campbell, Emily Young, Julia Murney, Jonathan Bernstein, Neil Patrick Stewart, Jordan Belfi, Barrett Foa, Michael Maresca, and Kristina Fernandez.
I moved to NYC in 2016, where I live with my brilliant wife Jordi and our weird little cat Madame Leota. Since moving, I have been active in the local cabaret scene performing, writing, and developing new work that centers queer female experiences.
