Hi, there! I'm casual mom.

Plucky, trustworthy, lovable, and oh-so-approachable. 

If that's what a project needs, that's who I am when I walk on set.


I believe passionately in the power of performance to create connection and empathy with any audience. I began performing at the age of three, in dance recitals and gymnastics competitions, and fell head over heels in love with the stage.  I've been at home there ever since. 


I have more than 30 years of performing experience, ranging from dance, theatre, and singing, to on-camera work in both television commercials and independent films.  Since relocating to Los Angeles, I have appeared in more than 20 national and regional commercials, and continue to work in television, film, and theatre as well.

 

Take a look at my latest project!

STRING PHONE 

Years ago, when I lived in Georgia, I worked in the greatest job I've ever had aside from acting...as a firefighter with Carroll County Fire Rescue. I have the most incredible memories of the community, the laughter of my fellows on the job, the heat of a working structure fire, and the excitement of driving that engine full-tilt with lights and sirens blaring. 

This month, my hometown newspaper, the Times-Georgian, did an interview and story about our little short film, String Phone, which was inspired by those years in CCFR. Here's a look at our film trailer and the excellent article by editor Ken Denney.
