She works for companies such as Chicago’s Victory Gardens Theatre (Hanging Fire), Porchlight Music Theatre (Sweeney Todd, Falsettos) and Drury Lane Oakbrook Theatre (Of Thee I Sing, Barefoot in the Park), Cleveland Symphony’s Blossom Opera (Falstaff), Center Stage (Streamers), Milwaukee’s First Stage Childrens’ Theatre (Seussical), and Buffalo’s Shakespeare in the Park (Much Ado About Nothing).

Her work can be seen in The Silk Road Theatre Project’s production of Caravaggio and on the stages of Porchlight Music Theatre later this year.
