Being an actress has been extremely rewarding for me. In preparing for roles, I have received an education that no school curriculum has ever taught me. I have learned the history lessons that our textbooks leave out. As an actress, I have shined a light on hidden societal sins and have learned about the human condition, love and the untold stories that have had transformational affects on me and audiences alike.  I've also learned about the importance of  legacy and what I want to leave in the hearts and minds of audiences in hopes that they too are transformed and leave the theater differently than how they arrived.

 Why Acting?

Ever since I was a young girl prancing around in my Wonder Woman Underoos, I was determined to be an actress, singer and model.  But then again isn’t that most young girl’s dream? The problem with that dream was resources and accessibility.  Therefore, my dreams would have to wait until adulthood.

 

As an adult, I realized that genetics wasn’t on my side and that I was too short to be a model and my singing voice was pretty much non-existent. So, by process of elimination, I naturally was drawn to acting.  I took my first acting class in 2000, at the age of 25, and as expected I was struck with the acting bug.

 

After my first acting class, I auditioned  for the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in NYC for their summer program and was accepted and the rest is history.  I continued to take classes and did community theater until relocating to the Chicagoland area.

 

Since moving to Chicago, I’ve been fortunate to play several leading roles by inspiring Latinx, playwrights such as María Irene Fornés, Carmen Rivera, Migdalia Cruz, Charise Castro Smith, Sabina Berman and more. I am also a proud ensemble member with Halcyon Theatre and UrbanTheater Company and I am blessed to call them my artistic homes.
