Major: Theater & Performance Studies 
Pronouns: she/her

I've wanted to be an actor since I was eight. I would put on my mother’s fanciest dresses and pose for the stuffed animal paparazzi on the living room couch. My path to stardom continues, but instead of amusing my mother, I now spend hours upon hours in a black box theater with my scene partner, trying to figure out how to raise the stakes in our scene. I believe that acting is a process of discovery and questioning. I almost quit acting due to a speech impediment called cluttering, but something keeps drawing me back. Reach out whether you have questions or not—we can grab coffee! If you feel intimidated, just know that I constantly memorize my monologues the night before performing.
