I am a lifelong creative whose work spans diverse mediums. I've appeared in All My Children, Missing Persons, and the film Rudy. I loved raising her two wonderful boys, acting in The New Harmony Project, co-facilitating Young Women Writing for (a) Change® Bloomington circles, and writing my debut novel, Split Open, which was published in 2021 (audiobook coming soon). My recent acting work includes two audio drama series: WFIU's The Ernie Pyle Experiment! (an Audie Awards® finalist), and Starrynight Productions' The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Stage credits include Cardinal Stage's production of Our Town and, more recently, Constellation Stage & Screen's The Importance of Being Earnest and Deathtrap.
Previously I appeared in The Ernie Pyle Experiment!, a 13-episode radio drama series/podcast created by Michael Brainard and produced by WFIU, Bloomington, Indiana‘s local NPR station. It was one of five international finalists in the Audio Drama category of the 2021 Audie Awards®. I played Ernie’s complex wife Jerry in the series, which is about the early years of Ernie’s column and their marriage, work, and life on the road. To hear the podcast series, click here.
