about me…

Originally from Rochester, NY, I am a recent graduate of Rider University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre. In my time at Rider University, I was fortunate enough to have been a part of various productions, including Heathers: the Musical (Heather Chandler), She Kills Monsters (Evil Tina), and a staged reading of the Last Days of Pompeii (Julia). Along with performing, I also have stepped behind the table - most recently, assisting Blackfriars Theatre cast their regional production of Chorus Line.

When I'm not performing, I love reading, practicing latte art, running my makeup instagram, trying new foods (although Mexican food and queso will always hold a special place in my heart), and dreaming about the Golden Retriever I’ll own someday. I never capitalize my name, and I have yet to figure out just how many exclamation points are too many.

Although I have so much pride in my hometown (Go Wegmans!), I am beyond excited to start this new chapter of my life in the Big Apple!
