My acting career began at the age of 3 as a fidgety Christmas pageant angel in my hometown of Elgin, IL. Since then, I have appeared in hundreds of productions, eventually earning my Bachelor's in Theatre from Roosevelt University and a Post Graduate Award in Teaching Shakespeare from The University of Warwick in Coventry, England. I also worked for many years as a plus size model in Chicago, NYC and LA. Currently, I am part of the faculty at Acting Studio Chicago, and work as a private audition coach and freelance director.
I am happy acting on both stage and screen. I am also available for voice over, event facilitation, live events modeling, and hosting. Please visit www.PaonessaTalent.com to view my resume, as well as for any theatrical, on-camera, voice over, or live event bookings.
For the last few years, I have been fortunate to build my list of clients from word of mouth recommendations. I work regularly with professionals preparing for on-camera and theatre auditions, incoming college students getting ready for school entrance auditions, and even young actors and their parents who need security and guidance to find success in the audition room.
I am also excited to be a speaker and workshop facilitator at this year's Self Employment In The Arts Conference, Feb 23 and 24 in Chicago.
