This summer I had the opportunity to perform in Steamboat Springs Colorado! I played Miranda and Trinculo in Piknik Theater's production of The Tempest. The show was performed in two locations: the local library and the town's beautiful botanic garden. Additionally, I collaborated with fellow actors in creating a children's show, based on the book The Paperbag Princess! We also had the opportunity to teach Shakespeare acting classes (ages 7-14) during the day!
Please read Jaime Mowers' article in the newspaper, West End Word, about our summer performance in Forest Park.

After four years working with amazing faculty and fellow students, I was honored to graduate Magna Cum Laude with Departmental Honors from Webster Conservatory of Theatre Arts.
This Spring, I had the opportunity to create music and perform as Sappho in Heriodes, a new site specific work by Trace Turner.
On Sunday, April 28th, I joined over one hundred of my fellow actors, musicians, costume and stage designers, stage managers, directors and technicians in an attempt to set the Guinness World Record for the fastest musical production. We staged William Finn's A New Brain in 13 hours, 21 minutes!
This Spring I had the opportunity to play the King and other roles and write and perform music for The Little Prince at The Conservatory of Theatre Arts at Webster University. This was a wonderful experience where I got to put my acting and musical skills to work.
This Spring, my graduating class and I travelled to NYC for our Spring Showcase and to perform at Feinstein's/54 Below.
I will be making my professional performing debut as Maria in Shakespeare Festival St. Louis's production of Love's Labors Lost in Forest Park this summer!
I am incredibly thrilled to announce that I have been cast as the King/Desert Flower/Snake in Webster Conservatory's production of The Little Prince! It is a wonderful cast and I am so excited to get started in a few weeks!
