I am originally from the cornfields of DeKalb, IL, where I grew up homeschooled alongside my five siblings. After graduating Summa Cum Laude from Northern Illinois University with a BFA in Acting, I moved to Chicago to join the vibrant, generous, and exciting theatre community here, and have loved every minute of it! In August 2015, I signed with Shirley Hamilton, Inc.
I recently finished training at the School at Steppenwolf (Summer 2018) here in Chicago. Before that, I spent an incredible season as an Emerging Professional Resident at Milwaukee Repertory Theatre (2016/2017). I was also recently a member of the Next Stage Ensemble at the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, where I spent the summer touring NJ performing "Taming of the Shrew."
When not onstage, you can find me reading, listening to podcasts, teaching, and exploring the incredible city of Chicago!
