She has developed/presented work around the country, including at The Lark, The O’Neill, Yale Cabaret, EST, WTF, Dixon Place, Fresh Ground Pepper, #serials@theflea, Nashville Rep, and beside unsuspecting Chipotle patrons.
Recently, she has been an Emmy Nominee, Kilroys Top 5 Lister, Ingram New Works Lab Playwright, Playwrights’ Center Core Apprentice, Jerome Finalist, Princess Grace Finalist, PoNY Nominee, and some other things.
She is a member of EST Playwrights Unit, Mission to (dit)Mars Propulsion Lab, & DGA. Some of her short plays are published by Next Stage Press.
