 I grew up in Fargo, ND.  Fargo is very friendly and very cold!  My childhood was a blast.  I was always involved in theatre and loved auditioning for musicals whenever possible.  I started dancing and taking voice lessons when I was 14.  In high school, I attended a local summer performing arts school called TrollwoodPerforming Arts School.  They had/have amazing teachers there and I think that really helped prepare me to pursue a career in performing.I ended up going to college at Concordia College for Music Education in a town right next door, Moorhead, MN.  

Iíve always loved performing so much! I was very focused and obsessed with it in high school, but was never quite sure if I was good enough to move to New York and do it professionally.  Moving out to New York was always a dream of mine, but I never really knew for sure if it would happen.  New York seemed pretty scary coming from Fargo, but a few students at Trollwood had moved there and they inspired me to do the same.  My parents were always very supportive and my college voice teacher, Karen Hamilton, was really influential and gave me the confidence to make the move.She believed in me from the start, even when I didn't believe in myself. My parents were also very supportive. They have always wanted me to pursue my dream career.  I would have never made it out here without the three of them.

I was in the ensemble of Guys and Dolls in College and I've always loved this show and loved the role of Adelaide, so I'm really excited to get to play her.  This will be my third show at the WBT. I really enjoy working here. Everyone is so nice and so supportive, hence why I keep coming back! :) I'm very thankful for the WBT for this opportunity. I love the movie, and I love when they make musicals into films. It's never quite as good as seeing a show live, but it's a great way for people to be exposed to musical theater. 

love Funny Girl and would love to play Fannie Brice.  I also love Les Miserables.So good!  Iíd also love to play Ado Annie in Oklahoma.  

When Iím not on stage, I teach voice, dance, and piano lessons. I like to watch Law and Order SVU and the Food Network and bum around on facebook. Sleeping is nice too.  I mostly, though, enjoy spending time with friends and my amazing husband!  
I like all kinds of music.  I love me some Beyonce and any current Pop or Rockmusic.  I like Country too. I also listen to a lot of Praise and Worship music.
