Born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, I now live in Astoria, New York and I'm grateful that my heart has made its way home. 

2019 continues to be an incredible year. In November I'm shooting an episode for Investigation Discovery's new series, Dead Reckoning. I play the lead homicide detective, Chastity Blades. She is a bad-ass. And as of October, I am freelancing in Commercial/Print with Citizen Talent Management. Earlier in the year, I did a four-week run of a new play called, My Name is Sam at the Manhattan Repertory Theatre (playing the lead role of Rose), a 12- show run of Les Liaisons Dangereuses, playing Madame de Volanges... and a commercial with Samsung - check out the final product here: https://insights.samsung.com/2019/09/25/samsung-dex-and-citrix-secure-remote-desktops-for-federal-agencies/

I practiced law in Florida before moving to NYC in January of 2017. My NYC training includes extensive classes with The Barrow Group and current enrollment in multiple classes at the Lee Strasberg Institute. 

In my "free" time (ha!), I'm reading articles about orcas, trying to reduce my environmental footprint and adoring my crazy cat, Winter.
