in Florida, I grew up in Ft. Myers which is just
south of Tampa. After high school I became
very active with the Drama Department at
Hillsborough Community College in Brandon. So
active in fact that I became Secretary of the Drama
club during my second year. Even the busy
schedule of school, work and being Secretary could
not keep me from performing in a "Who's Afraid of
Virginia Wolfe" and "A Brick and the Rose".
I also had the privilege of being assistant director
for "Butterflies Are Free". After
receiving my AA from HCC, I transferred to The
University of South Florida where I began my Theatre
Education track. During my studies I
participated in university productions with such
duties as costumes, props, building sets, make-up
and sound. I also had the joy of being a camp
counselor for Summerplay, a summer theatre program
at U.S.F. Summerplay allows bay area students
ranging in age from 8 to 17 the opportunity for
growth in the dramatic arts at the university level.
Finally on December 15, 2001 I graduated with my BA
in Theatre Education.
