Born and raised in Albuquerque, NM, my theatrical training began at Working Classroom in 2006. At Working Classroom, I studied with guest instructors from Yale School of Drama, Naropa University and Tectonic Theater Project.
Upon receiving a scholarship from Working Classroom, I attended The Theatre School at DePaul University in Chicago, where I was fortunate to have graduated magna cum laude with a BFA in Acting. Subsequently, I worked with the Goodman Theatre, Adventure Stage, and Collaboraction Theatre. I was honored in 2013 when Chris Jones from the Chicago Tribune chose me as one of the Top 10 upcoming talents in Chicago Theater.
My original one-woman show, GUERA, was first produced at the YoSolo Festival in Chicago. In June 2015, I was a Fellow at the Women’s International Study Center in preparation for Guera’s New Mexico Tour (for more information, please click on One-Woman Show).
In recent years, I’ve had the pleasure to revisit Working Classroom as a guest instructor, teaching workshops such as Intro to Monologues, Intro to Improv, and Theatre Games for Young Adults and ESL Adults. I am currently residing in Los Angeles, California.
