Owner/Teacher

I graduated from California State University Chico with a Bachelors Degree in Communications. I performed and trained on many stages throughout California, including Chico State, Long Beach City College, Irvine Valley, Saddleback Community College and Huntington Beach Playhouse. I’ve enjoyed learning through various scene studies, workshops and commercial classes throughout Los Angeles and Orange County. I also served as an intern at CNN’s Showbiz Today. Although I didn’t choose a career in theater, I found that the skills I learned from these experiences a tremendous influence to my professional life as well as a life enriched with the Arts. I love working with children and I’m thrilled to be having the opportunity to work with Drama Kids.
