Title: Production Stage Manager at Phoenix Theatre

Married/Single: married

Kids: a joyful, ball of one-year old energy, daughter Rosalyn.

City you live in: Phoenix, Ariz.

A typical day in my life includes…

up at 5:30/6:00 to try and catch a cup of coffee with my husband before our daughter wakes up. A quick hike in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve then workout while RG copies my actions. Coffee. Toddler activities and then off to work in the afternoon at Phoenix Theatre, more coffee. Either rehearsal or a show and home again at midnight to sleep and do it all over again.

I was born…

in Tucson but have lived all over the country.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the sunsets.

I’m listening to…

Moana, on repeat. When I get to pick, I’m on an OAR kick at the moment.

My family…

is the world to me!

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

P!nk. She seems like one badass mama and is a powerhouse in her industry.

One thing I cannot live without…

fabulous beverage containers.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a pediatric oncologist. I even started college pre-med.

I’m inspired by…

my sister.

The one person who motivates me is…

my mom. She comes in from out of town during our tech weeks at Phoenix Theatre – the week we add all the lights, sound, scenery and costumes to a show to get it performance ready. She keeps my house rolling while my husband is working the football season and I’m pulling long hours at the theatre. She takes care of all of us, bakes, and my house is never cleaner. I hope to be as amazing as she is someday.

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

there would be more kindness.

The perfect day would be…

to be at the lake, in the mountains, surrounded by my family.

My first job was…

neighborhood babysitter. I had an amazing babysitter bag. I like to think it was my first Stage Manager’s Kit.

My favorite escape…

a good book, to sing, or a hilly trail run.

My life…

is pretty darn good.

I’m currently working on…

West Side Story at Phoenix Theatre.

Always…

bring your water.

Never…

forget your coffee.

Favorite Quote…

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting their own battle.”

Biggest Dream…

keep living this life to the fullest

My Pet Peeve(s)…

cracking knuckles.
