I was born and raised in Spanish Harlem at 116th Street and 3rd Avenue. I have two sisters and two brothers. I am the youngest of five.

I always loved watching old movies with my mom and dad. So when a movie about the life of Judy Garland came on, and they called her the little girl with the big voice... I thought to myself, I want to do that one day! I loved her way of performing. 

I did the show from Its second reading all the way to the Broadway run. I became a swing on Broadway. When the show closed and went out on tour,  I was in the singing ensemble understudying the roles of Gloria Fajardo and Consuelo. 

This is my first time here at WBT. I love the stage, cast, crew, and the patrons. All have been welcoming and sweet.

I have so many favorite shows. From Rent, Spring AwakeningDear Evan Hanson and so many more. I love them all for different reasons. I’d love to play Heidi Hanson in Dear Evan Hanson. She seems like just the right amount of broken.

When I'm not on stage, I enjoy swimming, boating with my boyfriend, watching old movies, and playing word games.

I have all sorts of stuff on my iPod. But my favorite station is Ella Fitzgerald on Pandora. It puts me in a great place.
