​​I’m typically cast as the direct, no nonsense professional who calls ‘em like she sees ‘em. My recent film roles include a critical and demanding politician (lead) in a political satire on Amazon Prime, an overly confident psychiatrist who puts pills ahead of patients (supporting—in post production), and a lesbian in a long term relationship who tutors a young gay man on the art of finding love (supporting—in post production). In November 2022 I played a devoted but deeply flawed mother in the play SHE SAID, SHE SAID—an Equity Showcase production at Chain Theatre, NYC. It’s a story about both the love and loathing in mother-daughter relationships. I also work on various types of voiceover projects including commercials, corporate and educational productions, and character work. 

Prior to my career as an actor, I worked as a TV news reporter in Tampa,  the 13th largest television market. I covered all types of news stories from murders and hurricanes to war heroes and celebrities. I studied the Practical Aesthetics technique for acting at Atlantic Acting School in New York and have trained in Improv at The PIT. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Radio-Television with a Minor in Theater from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale and a Master's Degree in Journalism from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I'm also a proud member of New York Women in Film and Television.
