Q – How long have you been involved in theater?
I’ve been acting since I was 8 years old! This winter marks year twenty…
Q – What are some of your favorite recent productions?
Performing as Bianca with Seven Stages Shakespeare Company in their June production of “The Taming of the Shrew” was a blast , and most recently working with Kent Stephens and Stage Force on their Strawbery Banke commission was a great intersection of my two loves: theatre and history. My favorite recent part remains however, playing Beth in “A Lie of the Mind” at the Player’s Ring in the fall of 2013.
Q – Have you performed in the Vagina Monologues before?
Yes! I performed in two productions of the Vagina Monologues through my student-run theater group in college, but I was able to work with Back Alley in V-DayPortsmouth and Rochester last year for the first time performing “Because he liked to look at it.”
Q – What made you want to be involved in V-Day this year?
After seeing the tremendous amount of positive energy, creativity and fundraising that the 2013 & 2014 production contributed… How could I turn down the chance to return?!
Q – Who is the most influential woman in your life?
My mother is the most amazing woman I know. She is an incredible example of strength, grace and love. She’s my best friend, my role model, and my favorite shopping buddy.
Q – What or who inspires you?
My friends and family: Seeing the amazing things that the people around me accomplish gives me all of the inspiration that I need to tackle anything on my to-do list, including things that I haven’t thought possible yet!
