I began my theatre studies in high school and turned down multiple Division 1 Scholarships in softball to pursue my acting career. I studied Theatre at the University of Tennessee and graduated in 2011. I then worked for 7 months with Kentucky Shakespeare where I acted as well as taught Shakespeare to kids. After my time with the Shakespeare company I decided to take the plunge and move to Los Angeles in November 2012. I have been auditioning and working since and have been fortunate enough to have been in multiple short films, 1 national commercial, 2 web series, 1 play, and numerous other projects. When I'm not acting I work in production on feature films.
I am currently studying at Clay Banks Studio International.
I work as an Assistant to Producers at Street Entertainment.
