All hail the queen of everyday people

Kicking butt and taking names so I know who to send the get well card to. 


I started acting at 2 months old, when I embraced non-traditional casting by accepting the role of baby Jesus in my family's live nativity scene (...fine, I slept through most of it).  My three year run was cut short when at the age of 2, baby Jesus left the manger in search of chocolate chip cookies and excitement. 


Living overseas while growing up instilled in me a love of travel and an appreciation for culture and art, as well as the ability to over pack for any occasion.  I've studied at Second City, Sears and Switzer, HB Studios and Neighborhood Playhouse.  I perform monthly with the improv group Slow...Children at Play, and I'm an active member of  Moving Arts Theater Company. The three credits I'm recognized the most from are a kind, concerned nurse who turns demonic on The Bold and The Beautiful, Beth the loving but disapproving widow on Mad Men and my endorsement for an air brush makeup system I adore.


I also have a set trained Jack Russell named Milo.  When neither of us are on set, we're looking for sunny spots to lie in, adventures to go on and a (you guessed it) good cookie or two.
