Welcome everyone!   

Here we go!! I grew up in a small town called San Francisco. Joke! However, not the part about San Francisco. :-) Anyway, yep so I grew up in the Bay Area and as a kid I was always the jokester/goofball/you name it. So I brought myself down to Los Angeles to show the world what I am made of!

More slapstick than stand-up, to be clear. I am a Virgo (I love writing to-do lists) and use my left hand for most things. I am a mother of 4 cute bunny rabbits named Nibbles, Pickles, Suzie & JoJo. I adopted my bunnies at BunnyLuv Rabbit Resource Center where I currently volunteer. They have at least 100 rescue bunnies! 😀

Furthermore, I am a Second City graduate which allowed me to hone my improvisational skills as well as studying at various acting studios to broaden my toolbelt.  Techniques include Meisner and Stanislavski to name a few. 

You may have seen me on For The People, Tosh.0, etc Also, I’ve had lead/supporting roles in several indie films and performed sketch comedy/improv in many theater venues including the world famous Second City!  Comedy is my specialty, however, my tough edge can rock out some drama! I’ve been told I am a younger version of Kathy Bates! 😉 That’s what they told me!

Please enjoy viewing the rest of my website! Have an amazing day!toughchick

 

My bunnies…

Pickles, Nibbles, JoJo, and Suzie!
