My love for the arts began in preschool, when my grandfather would show me his community theatre productions in his basement every time I visited, and we would dance to the music together. Since then, I have performed in an array of productions and educational experiences- ranging from stage to screen...and of course, Zoom. I am an exceptionally dedicated hard worker and actress with pure love of the craft.


Besides my love of performance, I also specialize in creative and analytical writing. I've worked as a student contributor for Broadway World and currently manage @kennedycentertya on Instagram, the Kennedy Center's page for TYA (Theatre for Young Audiences)! Writing helps me tell stories both on and off the stage.

Content Creator

A career accomplishment I am beyond proud of is the creation of Because I Said So, a mother/daughter Youtube cooking channel. I manage the creation, filming, editing and marketing of this weekly show, and we have been featured in numerous local magazines and podcasts. Because I Said So ties together my love of performance, writing and social media skills. Direct business inquiries for BISS to:
