About me

My first professional acting job was in "Hansel and Gretel" at the Metropolitan Opera. I was 8 years old and I appeared with my Maternal Aunt, Peggy Cole who was an opera singer.
The bug hit me big time in college and I switched my major to Speech and Theater.
I studied with Uta Hagen and William Hicky. I did theater throughout my life for a living, to learn and to keep sane while I worked for Child Protective services.
I am a wife and mother. My dog runs the household. I am a breast Cancer survivor and have had two transplants. I walk and lift weights to keep fit. We love to go on cruises. I love the beach. I read voraciously and listen to all kinds of music, mostly in my car, where I sing ( very loudly)!
