As a musical theatre company director, she has lots of experience directing having directed the musical Poppies at The Space Theatre, and was nominated for Best Director for the musical tick, tick…Boom! at the Buddies in Bad Times Theatre.
Her teaching style is collaborative, working with actors to explore the language, context and music to help their emotional connection and character choices. She likes to give her students ownership of their work and encourage their excitement to perform.
“I really enjoy watching my students gain confidence in their craft, encouraging curiosity, and of course taking part in those “Aha!” moments.”
