It All Began with a Mouse

My junior year of college, I worked for Walt Disney World. I loved my time there because my sole job was to make families happy. After I left, I wanted to continue working with children and bringing them joy. I ended up landing a job at the Sooner Theatre, a performing arts studio in Oklahoma.

Backstage Magic

I was hired as a production assistant and assistant director for Sooner Theatre's youth productions.  I taught musical theatre, jazz, stage combat, dialects, and even a little ballet.  I wrote, choreographed, and directed two musical theatre productions involving k-2nd graders and 3-7th graders.  During my senior year,

Shakespeare for Kids

For my senior Capstone project at OU, I researched Shakespeare education for kids.  After researching different methods and strategies of Shakespeare education, I had the opportunity to teach 2 fifth grade classes about Shakespeare.

MT for Tots

In Winter of 2019, I taught at Christian Youth Theater Dallas.  CYT is  the largest youth theater program in the nation.  I introduced my students to musical theatre through the lens of Disney, writing and directing an original show for them.  As the teacher for the youngest students in the program (4-7 yrs), I learned how to effectively communicate with and instruct kids of this age group.

Sleeping Beauty

Spring of 2020, I hit the road to bring theatre to kids who rarely get to be a part of it.  I toured Prairie Fire Children's Theatre's production of "Sleeping Beauty".  My partner and I cast, taught, and performed in the show with a new group of kids each week.  Each group had kids anywhere between 7-18 so every show was different!
