Q – How long have you been involved in theater?

I have been involved in theatre since high school. In the past few years I got involved in theatre around the seacoast.

Q – What are some of your favorite recent productions?

Mrs. Greer in Annie at the Prescott Park Arts Festival during the summer of 2013. Various rolls in high school, such as Guys and Dolls, West Side Story and The Pajama Game.

Q – Have you performed in the Vagina Monologues before?

Yes, this is my third year performing in the Vagina Monologues. V-Day 2013 I was part of the Sextet, last year I performed my first ever monologue and this year part of the sextet again. This year I get to perform in this production with my good friend Lindy Ward, which makes it extra special!

Q – What made you want to be involved in V-Day this year?

It’s an important cause that I feel strongly about! It’s near and dear to my heart and I feel that getting involved in V-Day is a way to help those effected by sexual and domestic violence. Spreading awareness and educating in our community is where we can begin to stop the violence!

Q – Who is the most influential woman in your life?

My sister Mary, who battled breast cancer this year. She battled the disease with courage, grace and strength. With all her treatments and surgeries, she never lost her sense of humor. She’s my hero!

Q – What or who inspires you?

My parents, sisters and brothers! I am the women I am today with their love and support!
