Welcome to THEATRE!
Where we are all about the stories of everyone!
Hailing from Wisconsin, I moved to Summerville, 13 years ago to take a Theatre Teaching Artist position at Charleston County School of the Arts. I taught 6-12th grade theatre with a focus on acting and writing. Though I loved working with and creating relationships with those students, I was looking to focus on middle school and was lucky enough to find a fit here at GREGG MIDDLE SCHOOL!
Before making the GRAND trip south, I acted and directed in many theatres calling Milwaukee WI my base. I received my Masters of Fine Arts in Acting. While acting and directing, I was an adjunct lecturer at University of Wisconsin Madison (Go Badgers!!) and University of Wisconsin –Oshkosh. I loved working with students and sharing my passion for the theatre. Of course, I did not have enough to do so I also served as an actor and teaching artist with First Stage Theatre Company. This is what changed my life’s direction. Working with the diverse K-12 population in Urban Milwaukee truly showed the transformative power of theatre. LIFE SKILLS THROUGH STAGE SKILLS became my mantra and I never looked back. Though my heart is in the k-12 classroom, I occasionally teach classes at College of Charleston.
I am so lucky that my family is supportive. My 3 kids go to D2 schools and love the arts. My boys and husband are big into Scouting and work with PACK 825 and Troupe 700. My 5 year old girl is still finding out what she loves. This week it is soccer and animals. Given we have two dogs that are important members of the family; Shatner and Boo, her love helps us out. All keep us on our toes but we wouldn’t have it any other way!
When I am not teaching, I am trying to see shows, playing with my dogs, re-training to run a half marathon, grabbing a cup of coffee, reading and checking out different movies.
Stage skills are infused in EVERYTHING we do. I can’t wait to show you how.
