I thought you'd never ask...



Musician  |  Theatrical  |  Special Interest  |  Vocalist  |  Dance

I have been playing the piano for 22 years, and both teach and perform. I have had the opportunity to perform during multiple occasions, including a banquet in honor of Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. My performances include cocktail hours, nonprofit fundraisers and corporate events. I was also a 2012 titleholder within the Miss America Organization, where I was awarded as a top-ten finalist at the Miss Arizona pageant, a preliminary competition for Miss America. I've also received ABODA Superior with Distinction awards for piano and flute along with the Miss Tucson Desert Rose 2011 talent award. I equally have musical experience as a composer, Drum Major, conductor, flute, piccolo, vocalist, marching snare and violin.

I have been involved in production and media in a number of ways throughout the past 12 years. I have my own business ("Creative Media Gal"), utilizing my broad range of experience including but not limited to producing, editing, scripting, and shooting a variety of video project needs. I am also signed with Leighton Agency, a full service talent and modeling agency that provides local and national brands for the past 30 years. I have worked with the Walt Disney Company, City of Tempe and Mesa, MLB Arizona Diamondbacks, KPHO-Five Investigative team, the Department of the Interior and the Salt River Project (SRP); one of the nation's largest utility companies. I am a Summa Cum Laude graduate from Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism – with a bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism.

I have gained experience in the theatrical world as a director, producer, choreographer, performer, dancer and aerial artist. As a dancer, I grew up learning ballet, tap, jazz and hip hop, and throughout college socially danced all styles of ballroom/latin/swing. As a scene prouder and choreographer, I worked with dancers and performers as young as 5, all the way through adulthood. For over 20 years, I was involved in one of the largest Christmas Production in Arizona which serves over 50,000 audience members over a two-week period). In 2018, I began directing and overseeing all aspects of production for the “The Story,” an Easter Production in Anthem, Arizona.

Learning never stops for me, and I continue to develop my skills in hopes to encourage future generations to achieve their dreams through their own gifts and abilities!
