Where did you grow up?

Clinton, Mississippi.

What are your interests/hobbies/passions? What excites you?

Aside from theatre, I love to read! I really love fantasy and mystery stories. I also love to spend time in the kitchen.

Tell us a little bit about your theatre experience.

I have been acting since I was 13. The first play I ever did was A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I acted consistently throughout junior high and high school. In college, I was a part of Alpha Psi Omega, the national theatre honor society, and I served as president my senior year. I  have been involved in many different community theatres in the Jackson area, and I also perform around the Southeast with The Detectives Dinner Theatre.

How did you become involved with Uproar?

During the initial quarantine in 2020, I participated in many of the online play readings that Uproar hosted. In 2021, I had the pleasure of playing Beatrice in The Tipsy Bard: Much Ado About Nothing. I continued to be involved with Uproar by directing The Sixth Stage of Grief.

What’s been the most memorable experience you’ve had with the theatre?

Directing The Sixth Stage of Grief was an unforgettable experience! Watching Brent Hearn’s script come to life with an amazing cast and team will be a memory I always remain proud of!
