I have always loved to sing. When I was a child living in Wilmette, my parents enrolled me in Tom Thumb Players theater school, which was the first of its kind to offer theater training to young people in Chicago. I remember singing Where is Love from Oliver, which was the first time I sang in public, and after that my life was never the same. As a girl, I took piano and violin lessons and at age 12, I began taking voice lessons.

As a teen, I performed in plays and sang in several choirs. My love for singing and acting continued at Indiana University where I majored in Theater earning a B.A. As an undergraduate, I was a member and soloist with one of the leading vocal groups, The Singing Hoosiers.

As an adult, I have continued to study with outstanding vocal coaches, and have honed my skills as a singer and actor. I have performed with Evanston’s Light Opera Works and have appeared as a guest soloist for public events, private parties and concerts. My leadership skills have been recognized as I have been instrumental in producing and performing in various fundraising concerts in the Chicago area.

I am passionate about using my theatrical and vocal skills to make a difference in the lives of others. Currently I work as a Teaching Artist/Performer with Storycatchers Theatre, “a youth development arts organization that prepares young people to make positive life choices through the process of writing, producing, and performing original musical theatre inspired by personal stories”. I have also volunteered with Changing Worlds, “an educational arts non-profit organization”.

I would love the opportunity to work with you. Please contact me.
