  • About me:


I'm a die-hard musical theatre fan with a passion for performance, teaching and animals, and mum of two wildly entertaining and energetic kids who keep me on my toes when I'm not in the classroom or office overseeing our youth theatre.  

My passion for drama began with a love of performing and musical theatre. The acting bug bit me early on in life, so it came as no surprise when I enrolled as a performance major at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. Wanting something more secure out of my career in the arts, however, I decided to switch majors to a BFA in Theatre Management and Promotions, with an emphasis in theatre education. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2009. After graduation, I became the Managing Director of SouthWisco KidStage, an after-school franchise I ran for three years in Wisconsin prior to moving to England.

I'm thrilled to now be the Youth Theatre Coordinator for Light UP, as well as teaching my Cobbett group.

I hope to meet you at one of our classes soon!

Light UP is a trading name of Unexpected Places Limited.
