About Me

I began working with actors over 13 years ago when I decided to suspend my acting career (see below) and teach so I could stay at home after my daughter was born. That decision has lead to one of the most fulfilling experiences in my life. Helping actors find and connect to what is deep within them and giving them a technique that allows them to shine!

I began teaching at the T. Schreiber Studio where I had received my professional training studying with Terry Schreiber. He had opened up a whole new world to the craft of acting for me and to able to pass that on, along with my own professional experience as an actress, to the next generation of actors has been one of the greatest gifts of my life.

I teach an Advanced Scene Study class at T. Schreiber Studio as well as my popular Monologue Workshop.

During my 20 years as a professional actress, I was fortunate to have performed many of the great roles written for the stage. I costarred with Jean Stapleton in The Showoff and performed major roles in New York at The Roundabout Theatre (The Holly and the Ivy, Winners w/Kate Burton), The York Theatre Company (The Miser), American Renaissance Theatre (The Seagull) and Primary Stages (The NY premiere of Stopping the Desert). Regional credits include The Guthrie Theatre (Foxfire, directed by Terry Schreiber), The Kennedy Center, Syracuse Stage (Romeo and Juliet), The Asolo Theatre (The Doctor in Spite of Himself), The Pennsylvania Stage Company (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof),and The Pittsburgh Public Theatre (Buried Child, Vanities). More of my favorite roles and plays include: Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Tartuffe, Twelfth Night, The Crucible, The Real Inspector Hound and Rosalind in the PBS Camera South production of As You Like It. My television work included numerous national commercials and various roles on NY soaps. Film work included The Verdict directed by Sydney Lumet and Robert Altman's Nashville.
