I am a 60 year-old Atlanta actress, mother of six and grandmother of 10, with more sure to come.
Since my first impromptu performance in front of my nursery school 50-some years ago, I have been allowed to romp about on stages in Virginia, Colorado, Georgia and New York in roles ranging from gods to devils, matrons and mentors, from classical plays to musicals. On film I played a jilted bride in The Renegade Priest's Mystery episode of FATHER DOWLING MYSTERIES, David Keith's drunken girlfriend in Bart Freundlich's WORLD TRAVELER and an evil hillbilly matriarch in BAD LAND, by Ron McLellen, as well appeared in commercials for Mile High United Way, C.A.R.E. International, and Alabama Power.
In the dozen or so years since moving Atlanta from Colorado, I've built a reputation for playing disturbing and eccentric women on stage, including Virginia Woolf in Process Theatre's production of Marki Shalloe's SUICIDE MANUAL, and the title character in Mark's O'KEEFFE: PAINTINGS FROM THE FARAWAY, NEARBY with Theatre Gael; Victoria in Stage Door Players' MOONLIGHT & VALENTINO; Lilly Binewski in GEEK LOVE with Sensurround Stagings; "politely" racist nurse Peggy Pava in bel CANTO! at Actor's Express; Kathryn in THE HOMAGE THAT FOLLOWS with Dad's Garage; Gertrude in HAMLET, the Duchess of York in RICHARD III, and Lady Capulet in ROMEO AND JULIET at The Shakespeare Tavern; and Vivian Bearing in WIT at Onstage Atlanta
When I'm not working, you might find me hanging out with my husband of 19 years, Skip, my Momma (who lives with us), my six grown children and 10 grandchildren, Momma's 4 cats and dog, our 3 cats, dog and 10 birds, OR knitting, crocheting, sewing OR riding around town on my PEOPLE 50 motor scooter, "Buffy."
