ME

I am an Air Force brat. My mother's dream for me was to be an Olympic swimmer.  Growing up, all my time was spent swimming and trying not to be awkward. And then one day my mother decided I should sing. I auditioned for the third grade choir and landed the solo in Hank Williams', “Hey Good Lookin’”. Fast forward to high school and I auditioned for Guys and Dolls. My first part...a sightseer. Was I hooked? Nope. Walking across the stage in the opening number and not again until the curtain call was not my idea of a good time. But my mother encouraged me to not give up. I auditioned for the next show, was cast as the lead, tasted the spotlight, and never looked back.  I have been incredibly fortunate to have performed all across the world singing and dancing. In 2004, I made my self titled cabaret debut in NYC. I married in 2006, and in 2010 had a beautiful daughter who became my main focus. After a 10 year hiatus, I was itching to sing again. In 2015, I completed my second solo cabaret show, “What I Did For Love”. And in the summer of 2017, I entered Mama’s Next BIG Act contest in NYC and was thrilled to be crowned the winner.

My current project is my third solo show, "The Happiness Project (a 10 week guide)". It has been wonderful performing this show over the last year at Don't Tell Mama, NYC. 


Seek the joy.  Follow your passion. Work on what you can control, let go of the rest.
