I trained at the Royal School of Dramatic Art in Madrid (RESAD), under the guidance of the renowned Spanish Director and Writer, Ernesto Caballero and I gained a BA (Hons) in Drama and Performing Arts in London. With twenty years’ experience and as a qualified Teacher, I have taught in both the private and public sector working in: Primary, Secondary, Special Needs, Behaviour Support and teaching English as a Foreign Language.
As well as running The Acting Crew I am a fully qualified Counsellor and registered member of the BACP and I run by own Counselling practise ‘Reflection Counselling’. I am passionate about linking my work as a Counsellor to drama using dramatherapy with children and adults.
My theatre credits in Principal roles include Glinda/Aunt Em in The Wizard of Oz, Mary Poppins, Mary Magdalene from Jesus Christ Superstar, Emma from Jekyll & Hyde and lead Operatic vocalist with Questa Voce, Maria Josefa in The House of Bernada Alba, various comedic roles in Alan Ayckbourn plays and A Woman Alone by Dario Fo. Recent productions have been Diana from The Maintenance Man and Muriel from A Woman in Mind. My most recent and exciting role was as Tamora- Queen of the Goths for Brownsea Open Air Theatre’s production of Titus Andronicus for 2018.
My ensemble credits include Hello Dolly, The Gondoliers, Fiddler on the Roof, Gypsy, My Fair Lady, Me and My Girl, Red Hot and Cole, Oliver and Legally Blonde. I have performed in concerts as a soloist and part of the ensemble and I also sing opera!
Alongside my work, I enjoy visiting National Trust sites with my family, swimming and wearing crazy shoes!
