I am a lifelong storyteller who has the stories to prove it. Growing up in the Big Apple, I first honed my acting by sneaking into the NBC studios. I earned my B.F.A. at Fontbonne University and moved to Chicago where I studied at The Second City and later with its’ founders. I currently teach acting and improvisation at Center of Creative Arts (COCA) in University City.
I am also an Applied Improvisation Certified Practitioner which means I facilitate workshops using techniques borrowed from improv. My clients include SONY, Southwest Airlines, Purina, Monsanto, Saint Louis Zoo, Millstone Institute and Washington University School of Medicine.
I am a ghostwriter for television, radio, comedians, and internet personalities. You might catch me teaching improv on Oprah’s nationally syndicated reality show, WELCOME TO SWEETIE PIE’S. I’ve been blessed to work with some of the world’s most respected veteran actors such as Paul Sills, Anna Deavere Smith, Anne Bogart, and Avery Schreiber.
My husband Scott is a social worker and we live downtown St. Louis with our charming Yorkie named Oscar.
