Behind the Scenes

Biography

A Dream Come True

​​I had always wanted to be a

ballerina until I saw my first ​​

Broadway show, “Mame”, 

starring Angela Lansbury.

While pursuing a life in the theatre, 

I ran into Ms. Lansbury

in a NYC market. I was in awe.
After singing her praises

and telling her that she was

the reason that I went into

Musical Theatre, she said

"Honey don't blame it on me!"
I have performed in well over 100 different performances including commercials, television, film, industrials and theatre.

In the middle of all that fun,

I married a prince charming 

moved to New Hope, PA 

and have two talented young men.

The dream come true... 

I got to perform at the newly renovated historial theater, the Bucks County Playhouse

in their first big musical "Mame"

I played Mrs. Upson and understudied Andrea McArdle for Mame 

AND I GOT TO PLAY "MAME"

I do "Put the Blame on Mame"

for my wonderful life.

Shoevies

​Shoes + Movies = Shoevie 

Combining my two passions,

my love of shoes and movies...

I review and rate shoes in movies

and then show my shoes.
