Willkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome!
Originally from Westborough, MA, I came to New York City to study Opera Performance at the Manhattan School of Music. I studied with Mignon Dunn and Ira Siff during much of my operatic career. All that was a few years ago, and ultimately, I took a break from singing for a time and started my own production company, specializing in film & photography, events and product launches. I came back to singing a few years ago and along with appearing in a number of Off-Broadway productions, I performed both the Miss Andrew/Birdwoman track in Mary Poppins at the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse and recently took my first run as Joanne in a one-night concert version of Company in Westchester, NY. Currently, I am performing as Fräulein Schneider in the National Tour of Cabaret.
As you toggle through my website, you might notice that I look a bit different in a number of the pictures. When I came back to singing, I decided to make some changes that I felt would be more appropriate for the Musical Theater field. Over the last few years, I have lost over 100 pounds, earning Lifetime Member status with Weight Watchers. Health and fitness are now forefront in my daily life along with meditation, yoga and Pilates.
After almost thirty years, I call New York City home. Along with my dog Olive (yes, named after the martini, not the ‘other reindeer’),it is where I live, love and enjoy all that New York has to offer. While I try to take advantage of the variety of artistic musings in my community, I am also an avid baseball fan (I will not say which team in respect to my hometown) and I do sport a certain team’s cap to cover my wig cap between shows.
I look forward to hearing from you. If you have any questions or would like to know more about me, please feel free to email me and thanks for visiting my website.
