After 20 years in the business as an actress and director ... I've done most every aspect of the business. My career as an actress/director/coach has expanded over the past two years into working with children. I love it! I believe performing arts is essential in a child's development because it applies body, voice, and the exploration of emotions toward building strong self image and an ability for expression that they will use throughout their lives. I handle teaching the craft to children through games, exercises and Music. I had no idea how much I would enjoy working with children. I absolutely love it. I have such a great rapport with them ... treating them with respect, expecting a lot, and getting it out of them while being attuned to their individual needs. And ... I am a lot of fun! I am very energetic. And I find that my kids really feed off of it. As a producer once said to me, “They just follow you, they want to do a good job for you.” And they do. And, then, I get even more excited! Fun and productivity all at the same time!
