I began my acting career when I was child in Vacaville, California. That's right...Vacaville which literally means "Cow Town" in Spanish. Growing up in Cow Town Cali, there wasn’t a whole lot to do. And being one of three children to parents just starting out in America, funds were a little bit tight. But my parents encouraged us to use our imaginations to create whatever we wanted to be. I loved pretending to be a teacher, a dentist, a hair dresser, a scientist, a chef. You name it, I wanted to be it. And what better way to explore all my options than to become an actor.
Anyone who knows me, knows how much I just LOVE to TALK! When I was a kid, I use to get in trouble all the time for talking too much in class. What can I say...I loved telling stories. Little did I know that I would end up turning it into a career.
The Heat is on in Saigon - and it just got even hotter! I am so excited to play Gigi in the US National Tour of the Broadway revival of MISS SAIGON. I have dreamt of being in this show since high school. I have had the privilege of working with the original creative team and sharing this incredible epic love story across the country. Hope to see you in a city near you.
