I am both an actor and a nurse with a graduate degree in psychology. This diverse training and work helps me to understand and develop characters. It provides a level of genuineness that is essential to the quality of the performance. As a medical educator I have used my acting skills to capture an audience and get my key points across. Appreciating the teacher/instructor role has been invaluable in my work on industrial pieces. As a parent and wife I draw on additional life experiences for character development. I am team player and appreciate that everyone’s performance is crucial to make the big picture a success. Authenticity, energy, professionalism and fun are key elements I bring to a job.
