    Professional actress

"I came to SDSU as a professional performer. I left SDSU as a professional performer, educator, and musical theatre historian. SDSU's MFA Program rounded me out, giving me a full 360 degree knowledge of musical theatre. Now, I feel more prepared than ever to hit the audition scene in New York City, and also feel more secure in my future as a lifelong educator and teacher. I am capable of so much more in our beloved art form, and SDSU gave me the tools to execute it."
