A typical day in my life includes…

a morning of English Breakfast tea and Cheerios while watching the Little Couple on TLC which always makes me smile and starts my day off on the right note. A full day at Phoenix Theatre working on one show or another then a late return home to my hubby for a night in on the couch with the dogs, watching a little British Bake Off.

I was born…

on a blistery cold North Dakota day in the middle of January.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the weather, even the heat, when you grow up in subzero temps the heat is always welcome.

I’m listening to…

Hamilton currently with a little Fun Home and In the Heights mixed in.

My family…

is everything to me and the reason I am who I am today.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

my father when he was in his early 20s.

One thing I cannot live without…

my English cuppa and a little chocolate.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a singer or gas station attendant; I loved the smell of gas and the jumpsuit looked warm.

I’m inspired by…

strong self-starters who lead with compassion and understanding.

The one person who motivates me is…

my husband always, he inspires me to be the best version of myself daily.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

to bring humanity back to humans. To have empathy, compassion, and caring be the first steps in all interactions. And for people to take joy and comfort in our differences and similarities.

The perfect day would be…

a day full of cooking shows with my hubby on the couch or traveling the world eating local cuisine.

My first job was…

at a Mckeever’s grocery store in Gwinner, ND.

My favorite escape…

on the couch in my living room with my Lola curled up at my feet.

My life…

has been very blessed beyond words. I have seen parts of the world a small town girl from ND would never see and have spent my adult years in a career I love, telling stories that need to be told. I never thought I could do or achieve the things I have in my 36 years of life and I am forever grateful for all the opportunities I have been granted.

I’m currently working on…

prepping for Phoenix Theatre’s next production of Jersey Boys and our New Works Festival

Always…

start each day with positivity it will change the outcome of your day dramatically.

Never…

forget what really matters in life.

Favorite Quote…

“A great attitude becomes a great day which becomes a great month which becomes a great year which becomes a great life.” – Mandy Hale

Biggest Dream…

to travel the world or to spend a day rolling around in a room filled with Pomeranians.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

repetitive loud noises or inefficient conversation.
