I was born in Ayr, Scotland and moved to Canada when I was 2 years old. After spending a few short years in New Brunswick and Alberta, my family & I finally settled in Vancouver, BC. There I studied at SFU and received a Bachelor of Arts with a double major in French and Spanish.
I was heavily involved in the Vancouver acting community for several years, and I performed in theatre, and in locally produced TV shows & commercials.
I had the opportunity to study acting in Vancouver with acting all-stars Alex Bruhanski, William Davis (X-Files) and Suki Kaiser at the Ivana Chubbuck Studio.I also studied with Masters at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts here in New York City and Meisner Technique with Larry Silverberg.
I have a love for language and speak fluent French and Spanish conversationally, and excel at a variety of accents including Scottish, French, Southern, Brooklyn, German and British.
I will always be a romantic, and my favorite roles include: Elmire in Moliere’s Tartuffe, Mrs. Cheveley in Oscar Wilde’s An Ideal Husband & Grace in Tennessee William’s Something Unspoken.
I am also a complete fitness fanatic and am extremely passionate about running. I have completed 10 marathons, including the highly prestigious Boston Marathon. I also have a love for a gentler form of exercise - yoga. I love animals and when you can't find me pounding the pavement running or for my acting career, you can find me volunteering at my local animal shelter or kitty sitting in my spare time.
I currently live in a cozy Upper West Side apartment in New York City with my husband, Robert, and 2 curious, cuddly kitty cats, Charlie & Boscoe.
