She is a performer in CCT’s annual show The Beatrix Potter Holiday Tea Party, which has toured across Chicago and in 2019, to China.

The findings of her 2017 study detailing gender parity across theatre professions in Chicago, released in conjunction with Collaboraction’s Gender Breakdown, were featured in the Chicago Reader and American Theatre Magazine. She holds a BFA in Acting and a Masters of Nonprofit Management from DePaul University. (Bio as of 2021)
