Greetings! I have been at Brevard High School since 2010 and have enjoyed working in both the English and theatre departments. I am also the director of both the Thespian Club and the spring musical here at the high school as well as all the other acting performances. We have also started a new tradition with the a fall production.

In my spare time, I perform both professionally and at a community level in the Brevard, Hendersonville, Waynesville and Asheville areas in musical theatre and straight productions. Some of my favorite roles include: Hope Harcourt in "Anything Goes," Snoopy in "A Charlie Brown Christmas," Audrey in "Little Shop of Horrors," Rapunzel in "Into the Woods," and Shelby in "Steel Magnolias."

Although I enjoy my life as an actor, my true passion is working in theatre education. Theatre is a place where one can set aside afflictions in reality and assume the mask of anyone. Theatre is an outlet, a form of expression, and a place where teamwork, community, and trust play vital roles. The students in the Brevard Community are remarkably talented, and it is truly a pleasure to work with them.
