About ME!

Headshot Spring '24

I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. At the young age of eight, I decided performance was my calling. As a result, theatre made up the majority of my childhood.

I’ve attended performing arts schools through my primary, middle, and secondary education including The Fine Arts Center - the first specialized arts school in South Carolina. After graduating early from high school, I attended Western Carolina University where I recieved a BFA in Acting, then attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts (RADA) in London for their Shakespeare 4-week Short Course intensive. Shortly after returning to the States, I moved to New York City - the perfect place for my upbeat, resilient, and expeditious personality. Within 2 months of moving, I landed my first role with Tier 5 Theatre Company at the Sargent Theatre in The American Theatre of Actors. And shortly after, booked the role of Stella Kowalski in A Streetcar Named Desire with The Redhouse Arts Center. 

I believe I was drawn to acting because it's the biggest way to initiate change. I want to create art that is more than entertainment, but transformation. Performance isn't something we use, but something that uses us. Actors are just the messengers. And with that responsibility, comes great influence. So, being an artist not only drives me to be a better person, but to uplift others, change lives, inspire, and motivate people to open their minds.

Though I thrive in the city, my heart still calls back down South. In my free time, I love hiking, joining a pilates class, finding new vegan recipes, spending time with my friends and family, visiting a new museum, or buying (pink) clothes I definitely don't need. 



In October, I will be joining Redhouse Arts Center as... 

A Streetcar Named Desire
