What are you involved in beyond ISU Theatre? I am a theatre and show choir choreographer around the Des Moines metro area.

What music and theatre projects are you currently working on or have recently completed? I recently completed "A Charlie Brown Christmas" at the Des Moines Playhouse as the choreographer and ISU Theatre's "Head over Heels" as the assistant choreographer and performing in the ensemble. I am currently playing Abigail Williams in "The Crucible" and am the assistant scenic designer for "John Proctor is the Villain".

What is your favorite thing about your experience at Iowa State? I appreciate how well rounded our theatre students get to be and the amount of student opportunities to gain experience and create relationships with other people involved in theatre.

Why did you choose the Department of Music and Theatre at ISU? I was interested in this school because it was close to home, and after the meetings I had with Brad and visiting the campus, I was so excited to come here!

What are your plans after graduation? After graduation I will be hopefully finding more choreography and performing opportunities, and eventually end up at grad school maybe!

Any words of wisdom for prospective students? Follow your heart; no goal is too wild or unrealistic. If it feels right, it probably is!
