Originally from Kansas, I moved to Columbia to pursue my passion for theater and events. In 2018, I received a Certificate in Theater from Stephens College specializing in Musical Theater and Lighting Design. Since then, I have worked with multiple theater companies both on stage and off including The Coterie Children’s Theater, The Unicorn, and Musical Theater Heritage. While working in Kansas City, I was one of three head house managers for Musical Theater Heritage and helped create and run almost 1,000 events in 2019.
Since moving back to Columbia during the pandemic, I have strived to be involved in the arts community as much as possible and add diversity and inclusivity to whatever I do. And I’ve been doing just that! I have directed and choreographed multiple musicals at Columbia Entertainment Company as well as acting for Talking Horse Productions. I am also the new Technical Director for Talking Horse Productions. I currently serve on E.P.I.C. (Emerging Professionals In Columbia) Executive Board as the co-chair of marketing and membership!
My creative thinking and collaboration is what helps work with my team to help create an unforgettable experience for our clients! Being able to see a client or the community enjoy an event is what helps motivate me to constantly raise the bar! My favorite part of an event is watching clients leave an event with a smile on their face and telling their friends that they had a great experience!
