Growing up as the daughter of a professional film critic in Los Angeles I always knew that I wanted to be an actor. I began stage acting in elementary school, studied for many years through various workshops, college courses, private lessons and coaching, and classically trained as a Shakespearean player. My professional film career began in high school when I appeared on several television shows and movies. I've personally worked with, and trained with, some of the best actors in Hollywood. I continued working as an actor until becoming a mother when I made the decision to stay home to raise my 3 kids, who are all now adults and working artists. I've been teaching all aspects of the performing arts for 30 years. I hold a BA in Media & Film Studies with a minor in Theater Arts.
