My Career Journey

I've done a little bit of everything, but my first passion was acting. I majored in Theater Performance in college; after graduating I spent several years performing in outdoor theaters and parks before relocating to Chicago. In the Windy City, I continued to act as well as doing voice-over work and improv comedy (and eating all of the deep-dish pizza).

While in Chicago, I also discovered my knack for organization and event planning while working as an administrator in ad agencies and financial investment offices. Since relocating to Shenandoah, I've found even more opportunities to put my performance background to use! I'm excited to stretch my networking and collaborative skills to engage with our employers and cultivate career paths for our students.

More About Me

3 words that describe me:

  • Gregarious
  • Observant
  • Curious
Some fun facts about me:
  • I'm still in love with Chicago-style deep dish.
  • I'm an amateur historian and, given the opportunity, will talk your ear off about whatever topic I'm currently researching.
  • I love watching classic films, all the way back to the silent era. It's the closest thing we have to time travel!
