My love for acting started in High School where I had planned to become a Drama teacher. Life, however, took me in a different direction for a period of time.

I was given the gift of my children who took most of my attention for quite a few years. Although I stayed involved in theatre and was in a drama troupe who traveled, my heart still desired to teach.

I wrote & directed a production for Grade 6-8 back in the 90's which was getting me closer to my first set out goal. When I moved to Calgary, I got involved in doing work in film, in dinner theatre, and recently in the stage production JADE.

I also faciIitated an actors group called Coffee & a Curtain Call. I have had a lot of fun in the different aspects of my acting career. Last winter I worked in Storybook Theatre as a teachers assistant, which was so exciting for me. As I worked with the 6-9 year old children, I realized I was living my hearts desire.

Presently I am working on blending my love for the stage and my career as a Hair Artist and working toward becoming a platform artist.

I do want to keep my foot in the door in film and theatre and work towards landing that 'lead role' that all of us actors desire and dream of.
