About Me...

So, I was raised in Mystic, Connecticut - yes, where they filmed Mystic Pizza... I get asked that all the time. After getting my BFA at UCONN, I packed up my suitcases and my futon in a UHAUL and headed out to Chicago and in to my life.

I have been fortunate enough to have had two acting careers: my younger self in the storefront theaters of Chicago and my older self on stage and in film here on the east coast. During a thirteen year hiatus, I learned to figure skate and had the opportunity to live abroad in Antigua where I became a Caribbean ballroom champion (there were no ice rinks in the islands!), I travelled extensively, I did a castle reconstruction in France, I got married and divorced and married and divorced again and all that experience has marinated in to who I am as a person, as an actress and as an audiobook narrator.

While the hiatus catapulted me from “young mom” to Lady Macbeth, the change has been a good one and I feel a strength added to my performances that only life experience and maturity can instill.

People always say I am full of energy and I laugh…I am full of something! (and no it's not Mystic Pizza, I'm a Vegan...vegan-ish!)

Things that bring me joy:

 good, hard belly laughs * iced coffee * the beach * turquoise blue * french fries * fresh sheets on the bed * vintage/estate jewelry * fresh cut flowers * exploring new places * a dirty gin martini * flea markets * China/Rider * medium ballpoint pens * city energy * France
