As she continues her work as an actor and educator she now also owns and operates her own educational theatre, Compass Creative Dramatics.
Outside of her career as an actor and educator - trying new food and going to summer festivals are among her favorite Chicago activities! Napping, especially in the sun, is a luxury that she tries to squeeze in once in awhile, too.
