Founder and Managing Director
I believe that each child has an inner artistic sense.
They dance, sing, paint or draw, and actively engage in imagination; and theater is one of the best ways to break barriers they experience while growing up.
It empowers them to throw away inhibitions and develop as well-rounded individuals.
The joy of seeing the tremendous personal growth that a child experiences through theatre, guided my career path in directing children’s theatre and theatre education.
Through my work as a middle school teacher and now through my work with Get2Act, I have directed many theater productions including The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, The Music Man JR, The Phantom Tollbooth, Through the Looking Glass, Aladdin JR, Beauty and The Beast JR, Annie JR, Into the Woods JR., High School Musical Jr., and Godspell.
Director of Choreography
With over 25 years of experience teaching various forms of dance, I spent a large part of my professional dancing career, performing with the Mississippi Gulf Coast Ballet Company, The Harford Dance Theatre and in numerous theatrical productions.
Equipped with a Masters in Teaching, I now focus on modern and musical theatre techniques at Get2Act.
I am dedicated towards not only ensuring students step into their dancing shoes, but also discover their vocal chords, so that they can become the all-in-one champs of musical theater.
