A Little Bit About Myself
Brought up in Beaumont, Texas, I did not grow up with the ambition to become a doctor, zoologist, or an astronaut. Dubbed by my kindergarten teacher as her "Broadway Baby," it was clear that I wanted to be in theatre.
As I grew up, I found myself immersed in multiple voice lessons, dance lessons, community theatre, All State Choir, and musical theatre camps, longing for more training. I then attended the University of Texas at Austin, receiving a B.A. in Theatre and Dance, emphasis in Musical Theatre and a B.A. in History.
During my time in Austin, I worked for multiple education departments at regional theaters, including ZACH Theatre and TexArts. Demonstrating, educating, and allowing kids expression through acting, dance, and design has been a passion that I continue to pursue alongside my performance career.
Two days before graduation, I received news that I would be an employed artist! I would spend the next year and half in Upstate New York bringing theatre to children and high schoolers all across the state. I discovered a new passion for choreography as I would choreograph show choir numbers and musicals for middle schools and high schools. I also spent extended amounts of time in New York City, growing hungrier and hungrier to become a part of the theatre community. Upon my Mom's sudden cancer diagnosis, I put my career on hold to take care of her. Since her passing in November of 2019, I have been slowly getting back on my feet. And the pandemic certainly made that more difficult. Not impossible, just more challenging.
My Mom was the most supportive person of my dreams. She also encouraged me to be well-rounded. I enjoy learning more about spirituality and history, as well as rereading the Harry Potter novels and scaring myself with episodes of Ghost Adventures. My favorite activities include cheering on my friends, eating popcorn, finding new workout routines, educating myself to be an anti-racist, and watching movies with my Dad.
