She spent her time traveling around the world researching how theatre impacts our lives. She is excited to be portraying Tracey in Sweat as her terminal project. Some of her other favorite productions include several Nell Gwynn, Every Brilliant Thing, The Little Mermaid, and Alice in Alice in Wonderland.
