For as long as I can remember, playing make-believe has been a part of my job description. Being a working actress has been an extraordinary gift that has allowed me to create characters and collaborate with some of the most talented people I know. There is nothing that will ever match the high that comes from show night on a multi-cam sitcom stage. It. is. Magic. I’m ready to bring that to a whole new level in the heartland. More coming on that soon.
Send Me Wings has been accepted into multiple film festivals for 2020, most of which are now virtual. Message me for the next showing!
Fresh Off the Boat wrapped a wonderful 6 season run in 2020. I couldn’t be more grateful to have been a part of this series from start to finish. Love my Fresh Family. Binge the series on Hulu to catch me giving LIFE to the ever-so-sassy, neighborhood queen bee… Deidre. I’ll love her forever.
Mad Men final season I got to star opposite Jon Hamm as Don Draper’s truth-slinging realtor, Melanie Davis. The entire experience was one I will never forget. Working with legendary characters. The dreamiest wardrobe by Janie Bryant accompanied by the perfect hair and makeup catapulted me back into yesterday. The chance to be part of it all was an absolute dream. If you haven’t yet binged this series on Netflix – GO.
