Theater is one of the great loves of my life, and I've been performing since I was three years old. I'm a classically-trained contralto (lowest female voice in the classical vocal fach [alto is actually a choral designation, not a voice type, but I digress]), so musical theater is what I've done the most of, but my repertoire of plays is growing as well. I've worked with several community/regional theater groups in the central Ohio area. 

Below are a list of my roles, with the most recent on top: 

Ensemble, Hello, Dolly!, Pickerington Community Theater, Cameron Wilkinson, dir. 

Pick-A-Little Lady, The Music Man, Pickerington Community Theater, Chris Gallaugher, dir.
