A Nittany Lion from the very beginning!

More About Me:

Born and raised in Westfield, New Jersey, my parents knew I wanted to be a performer from a very young age. I’m not sure if it was belting out all of “Jingle Bell Rock” from my car seat at age two, or refusing to leave the house without my wedding dress and Dorothy slippers that tipped them off, but needless to say, I’ve been in love with performing since the very beginning.

I started performing in shows when I was in the 3rd grade, but knew I wanted to make a career of it once I hit high school. I particularly fell in love with acting, and took class as often as I could. I love challenging myself to add complexity to every character I play, while bringing a little bit of myself to every role. I attended a public high school that highly emphasized an arts education, and spent all four years with a mentor who pushed us to take risks, be fearless and ask questions. Fast forward another 4 years, and I am about to complete my B.F.A at a school that has continued to push me to polish those skills and expand them even further. During my time here at Penn State, I have had so many incredible performance opportunities, many of which helped shape me as both an artist and a human, as well as create some lifelong friendships. Check out my resume to see some of my favorite roles I’ve played at PSU!

In my spare time, I love hanging out with friends and making people laugh—life is too short, ya know? I also enjoy researching and reading about energy healing, making jewelry, crafting, and baking my infamous* cake balls.
