I am a professional, classically trained actor, with more than twenty years of theatre, film, television, and radio credits to my name. I am a writer, teacher, and a passionate lifelong learner. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Calgary with a special focus on drama, dramatic literature, English, history, and dance. My specialties are in literature (I was specially trained in Shakespeare and heightened language), reading, writing, history, anatomy, communication and human behavior. I also have experience as a copywriter, editor, and proofreader. I use drama and humor to help illuminate difficult concepts and make learning fun! I also have special training in Linklater voice and speech, helping students develop confidence and a sense of identity finding their own true voice, stand up for themselves, overcome fears, shyness, and work through past traumas. I have more than twenty years of experience working with students of all ages. I regularly give individual coaching sessions, teach classes and workshops, developing my own curriculum. I spent twenty years in a troupe performing improvised 'twenty first century fairy tales' for hundreds of children every week with Me And My Shadow at Stage West for Kids, playing every princess, witch, and woodland creature imaginable - even a giant dancing rock! I am a fitness and nutrition enthusiast, avid gardener, and a passionate cook. I am friendlier than a puppy and also, I'm hilarious! I love movies, music, books, clothes, and comedy. I believe everyone is smart, deserves to feel incredible about themselves, and can learn in the right environment, and I can't wait to meet you and help you find your way to becoming as successful as you are absolutely meant to be!
