The chair of the film department at our state college reached out to me and asked if I could offer my acting skills to help their directing students in the education. This excites me! To be able to inspire young creative minds makes this life of acting even more rewarding.
I had a great time on set filming a video for a personal development company that uses humor to get their point across. The director said, “Wow, you have great comedic timing and incredible facial expressions!” Well, my response is that if you have a face why not use it.
I have always felt that acting isn’t a job, it’s a way of life. When I can bring a character to life, whether on stage, or screen, there is a transformation that happens, and my mission is to convey that feeling to the audience in hopes that it brings us closer together.
If acting was easy, everyone would do it.
I stared my journey in studies as a psyche major with language as a minor, but soon accepted that acting was in my blood. There was only one perfect choice and that was to be classically trained in theater at Florida Atlantic University and received my BFA in Theatre. At the time of my enrollment, I sought out my first agent and started working consistently for over 20 years. I can proudly say that I didn’t get my degree as a doctor, but I did play one on T.V. and that was even better. Later in my career I took a brief pause to write my first book, speak to women on stage about empowerment, homeschool our son and start a retail brand as a top seller on Amazon. Phew, that’s a lot even thinking about it. But eventually, the stage called me back and my journey picked up right where I left off. But the pause was invaluable.
Growth, wisdom, compassion and insight all wrapped into one journey.
My career has a wide range of experiences with starring roles in classical Shakespeare to contemporary roles in independent films and host to many TV shows and commercials. I love independent film work the most because of the ability to work directly with the creative team to create a finished product that is a winning film.
My motto as an actress is this; Get ready to Be Ready. Study, learn, grow and take risks in life. You never know what you will discover. I keep my acting chops sharp with the amazing team taught my Todd Vittum at the Burt Reynolds Institute.
Let’s see what we can create together.
