My mom went into labor with me while watching The Sound of Music at the Curran Theatre in San Francisco and I've been kicking and screaming ever since.  My real growing up years were spent in New York City. Manhattan is my heart.


I attended The Neighborhood Playhouse and have spent my time since graduating working with some phenomenal people, be they famous or not.


I always get asked the question, "So, what kind of acting do you do, or do you like best?" I’m a theatre rat so give me a stage and being with an audience, breathing the same molecules and sharing in the story – it can be magical! I love to make people laugh but it's the kind of comedy that comes from real human pain and problems that I like to portray. And of course I'm a musical theatre geek. Look at my entry into the world, "HELLO!"


My biggest showbiz joy to date is having my dream come true of not only being in a rep company, but it was on BROADWAY - one show being a Tony Award Nominee! This was with Tony Randall's National Actors Theatre and Tony continued to be my champion until his death in 2004. He was my mentor and friend and I miss him dearly.


My most meaningful acting-singing accomplishment has been my show diffiCult to leave about my 23 years in the Cult of Scientology.  I wrote it with Jake Anthony and Joshua Finkel and it earned me a Broadway World Nomination in 2014 for Best Female Cabaret Artist.  Chita River won but I came in 2nd – not too shabby! The show can be seen in its entirety on Youtube and it’s my intention it continues to help bring awareness of how dangerous this Cult truly is.  I hope I can help others escape the mind control.


What I love more than anything in the world are Dogs! I recently released a book on Amazon, Who Saved Who, about my terribly difficult 2022 - with the intent of helping to get these furry angels out of Shelters and into your loving homes!  


What's my ambition? To move you - be it to laughter or tears, through words or song. Man, I love this biz of show.
