Online Coaching Now Available!
I have been able to expand my client base across the nation because of my ability to teach online. Once I am able to coach in person again, online coaching will remain an option, as it has proven an effective and efficient way to work one on one with actors.
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 families who need security and guidance to find success in the audition room and navigate their way through the sometimes confusing entertainment industry.
I am also available for coaching ANYTHING Shakespeare. I hold a Post Graduate Award in Teaching Shakespeare and currently facilitate a workshop called "ShakesPlay!", which teaches an active approach to learning Shakespeare. I have also been teaching a version of "ShakesPlay!" at Acting Studio Chicago consistently since July 2020. I LOVE helping people figure out how to analyze and perform his words!

Since the beginning of 2015 I have been working my dream job as an instructor at www.ActingStudioChicago.com

Last fall I joined the faculty at Paramount School of the Arts in Aurora, IL. I am excited to be teaching Fundamentals of Acting in their prestigious Musical Theatre Institute, as well as several other classes in acting and improv. I am also currently serving as the administrator for the new Paramount Acting Institute, which will have it's first semester in Fall 2021!
I am also thrilled to have recently taught a workshop on Teaching Shakespeare this past winter at Stratford Festival in London, Ontario! I was invited to teach the 2020 Acting Company active methods of Teaching Shakespeare in the classroom, which they would then take into the local community.
As always, I am available year round for event facilitation for businesses, schools, non for profit groups, or any other organization who needs it!
I have a ton of EmCee and Facilitation experience for companies, both large and small, and love to find ways to fit the goals of your events into a memorable and inviting session!

In March 2021, my insanely talented colleague, vocalist Michelle Hackman, and I launched a 'dual private coaching service' we call
"Six Foot Studios"!
Our service is currently an online-only offering for performers who would like private coaching for both singing and acting in one session. We are able to custom tailor the sessions to the performer's needs, including everything from weekly lessons to last minute audition assistance. Six Ft Studios is ideal for the professional musical theatre performer looking for private audition coaching, as well as young performers looking to improve their skills with two teachers at once!
For information about Six Foot Studios, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me below.

I am also available for in-classroom Shakespeare workshops for schools, theatre companies, and even corporations. I hold a Post Graduate Award in Teaching Shakespeare from The University of Warwick in Coventry, England, and have been told by clients that my "passion for Shakespeare 'shines through'"
I pride myself on my "on your feet" approach to taking the fear out of Shakespeare, using techniques and tools taught to me by the education department of The Royal Shakespeare Company. It is my goal to help students and actors learn to approach Shakespeare with confidence and a sense of adventure!
