I’ve wanted to be an actress since I could remember. I’ve always had the desire to create characters and present them to an audience. However, a lack of self confidence and self-esteem would put my acting dreams on hold for the next quarter of a century.

I spent a good portion of my life searching for that certain something that was missing–graduating college–twice–and holding jobs in radio, marketing, retail, and assisted living care.

I never gave acting serious thought before the tragic events of September 11. That day changed my life forever. I realized then and there that I needed to take a chance on my dream of acting.

Thank God I did!

In late 2002, I began my acting career, stepping on stage for the very first time. Shortly thereafter, I started in film.

Due to family circumstances, I left NYC with my husband and dogs, making my home in Florida.

I discovered the Burt Reynolds Institute for Film and Theatre in 2010 and became a 2011 Burt Reynolds Institute Master Acting Class Graduate under the tutelage of my mentor and teacher, Mr. Burt Reynolds. It is there that I continue to study and hone my skills as a Master Actor.
