I have been a theatre educator and director for over two decades. My students have garnered awards on the region and state levels for their achievements in performance, technical theatre, and playwriting. They have attended theatre programs across the state of Georgia, as well as New York Conservatory of Dramatic Arts. I believe in empowering students with the tools to create theatre and guiding as they grow as artists and develop into adults.
After 20 years teaching and directing in a public school, I am looking to expand into directing and teaching in the professional arena. I am experienced as a director, a designer, and an acting coach, and have worked on well over 100 shows in the last 30 years. I collaborate very well with others, and I have received accolades based on my ability to connect personally with students and bring out the best in them.
I will be relocating to Jacksonville, Florida in June of 2019 and would love to join an existing company of artists or to freelance as a theatre artist and teacher. I am currently in the final stages of my MEd in education and will have graduated by the time I am available for employment.
