Winning audiences over across the country with a dynamic stage presence, she shares her misadventures as ‘The Bad Girl Next Door’. This Massachusetts native graduated from the George Washington University with a degree in Theater and Creative Writing. She has lived in the South for the past 10 years giving her a unique blend of Northern Aggression and Southern Charm.
