I’m a Southwest girl who always wanted to be a native Angelino. In elementary school, I lived on the outskirts of Vegas (which used to just be Henderson). I attended year round school, which meant we got to take road trips to Disneyland a couple times a year during the off season and didn’t have to wait in nearly as long lines as people who only had summers off. And I fell in love with Southern California. This was merely solidified when I saw the movie “The Mask” and developed a life changing crush on Jim Carrey. I thought, “How will I ever get to meet him??? He’s an actor…what if I were an actress…?” I then broke my parents’ hearts by declaring I wanted to be an actress and have been following my passion all across the country ever since I graduated high school.
I moved to NYC for school where I studied musical theater at the American Musical & Dramatic Academy and proceeded to do regional theater up and down the East coast. I relocated to SW Florida for a few years where I worked at a theater on Sanibel Island – not just as an actress, but also as their marketing director. It made for a nice change from the /acting job of waiting tables. While I was down there I got married, and about a year later I finally made the move to my dream home of Los Angeles.
