Los Angeles based SAG Actress
THIS IS MY STORY
"To be or not to be?" is not the question. The question is, “Should we work together?!” If you want a versatile actress who can embody strong female characters AND can still be the all American girl next door AND can be your “grew up too fast” indie darling- then you’ve come to the right actress. In Arkansas, I grew up with a mixture of that sweet southern charm that made me fun and likable. But then I was also living in a place where I had the desire to run around in the woods and pretend I was an action hero. From the time I could walk, I would pretend I was a superhero. I was aptly named “Supergirl.” But in the middle of all that was a deep desire for connection and an interest in the profound workings of what it means to be human. So you'd think acting was a pretty obvious choice? Actually it wasn’t. I started acting totally on accident. I had no idea what "drama" was but I needed an elective, and art was full, so I put my name down. But from my first monologue I was hooked.
Since coming to LA, I have starred in numerous short films and had the honor of treading several LA Stages. I have primarily worked on feature films the last few years, "Picture Perfect Lies," and other leading roles in "The Circular City" and "Angel Mountain." I have several TV roles as well: a co-star role on "All American" (the CW), a lead role on"Betrayed" (Investigation Discovery), and a co-star on Wild West Chronicles (INSP). I wrapped a romcom in Atlanta this past summer, and I am already looking forward to a few film roles in 2022.
In order to continue to work on my craft, I have studied at John Rosenfeld Studios. I am also enrolled in martial arts and sword fighting classes to stay sharp.
When not working on projects, I can be found working at a Mental Health Clinic where we help young adults find jobs or go back to school while recovering from mental health issues or addictions.
If any of this makes you think I might be someone fun to work with (and I promise you I am- I love a good collaboration), then reach out and let’s find a way to work together!
New, Notable, and Right Now
