What do you like about working at University High School?
I like working at University High School because of the creative culture that inspires me to continue my own craft and education, in turn making me a more well-rounded and relevant teacher to the students and their craft I get to nurture. I feel lucky to get to work with such smart and wonderfully creative kids.
I have been involved in theatre and television since childhood and have been lucky enough to study and perform in LA, Vancouver, BC, and New York as an actor and stand-up comedian. I work locally with several theatre companies, national radio shows, and I produce and cast local commercials. Recently I just directed my 25th local production. I live in Broad Ripple with my husband Dustin and our two little humans, Pearl and Harry. Outside the world of theatre and film, I love cooking and heist films.
