I've always loved kids but I discovered my love of teaching when I spent a semester working for Mickey Mouse himself at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.  Since then, I have taught everything from stage combat to jazz to singing to Shakespeare to musical theatre.  I have performed in countless TYA shows and tours, often for kids who have never experienced live theatre before.  I love introducing kids to the magic of theatre and watching them grow in confidence, experience great joy, and gain a deeper appreciation for the world around them.  I have written, directed, choreographed, and cast musicals for kids ages 4-14, as well as stage managed and dialect coached kids of all ages.  I've taught musical theatre for over 9 years, with 6 different companies, in 5 different states.  In the summer of 2020, I took on my first Education Director position with Starlight Mountain Theatre as head of their youth summer theatre camp. In the fall of 2021, I opened my own vocal studio and began teaching voice privately to kids ages 6-18 .  I look forward to reaching more lives and exposing more kids to the joys of theatre!
