I've been acting since I was a little girl, and grew up spending many happy Saturday mornings at the Cleveland Play House. Theatre has been a constant in my life amidst wonderful detours: researching and writing about international relations; producing, directing, and broadcasting on public radio; and parenting three kids with my loving husband.  

Chicago has been my home for more than 25 years, and I'm lucky to be part of this vibrant theatre community. I've  worked with great directors (Bill Rauch, Peter Sellars, Joann Green Breuer, Nick Bowling, and many others) and great theatres -- large and small -- and I have originated two roles in premiere productions: Lucy in Lynda Barry's The Good Times Are Killing Me, and Simone Beck in William Brown and Doug Frew's To Master The Art.

I've recently gotten a taste of the on-camera world on Chicago PD, Sirens, and The Onion. I look forward to the next project, on film or on stage.

And I am thrilled to be Jeff-nominated as Best Actress for The Little Flower of East Orange!
