I was raised in Atlanta, GA and Boston, MA, so I am a rabid fan of both grits and sports. I was lucky to have educators and family who cultivated my nerdiness and creativity. I developed my own love for the theatre playing the "little kid" in many musicals in which my sister was cast. Through these experiences and many more, I recognized the power that theatre has to encourage collaboration, communication, confidence, complex relationships, and self-efficacy.
I began working in applied theatre in 2009 with Aarohan International Theatre in Kathmandu, Nepal. Since then, I have been lucky to work with Bond Street Theatre, Arts For All, Voices UnBroken, the Harlem Children's Zone, Philadelphia Theatre Company, Women Against Abuse, the 52nd Street Project, Drew University, and more. My work has taken me to Newark, Raleigh, Kabul, Antigua, Doha, and Madison. In 2018, I transitioned to a new role as Executive Director of Speak About It.
I am thrilled to have made Philadelphia my home in 2016, along with my husband and our dog Libby.
