ACTOR - SOCIAL MEDIA MAVEN - REDHEAD
Growing up, I didn't see a lot of redheads in the media, as the only three were Reba, The Little Mermaid, and Anastasia...two of which were cartoon characters! My goal was to become a role model for all redheads, no matter their age.
I started acting in high school and have led a happy, regionally successful, 10+ year career. My favorite roles have included, Kira in Xanadu, Pattie in Smokey Joe's Cafe, Witch 1 in Macbeth, Ophelia in Hamlet, and Ruth in Plain and Fancy. I was excited to be named "Lead Actress Winner 2014" by the Pittsburgh Post Gazette for my role in Macbeth at PICT. During my career, I also had the privilege of singing with Miss Dolly Parton for her Nashville Flood Relief Effort.
When I'm not on the theatre stage, you will find me on stage at church, leading others in worship. Also, I play piano, bass, rhythm guitar...and I yodel.
Alongside my theatre career, I have built a prosperous career as a Social Media Marketer and Communications Specialist, founding MC1R Marketing, after the Redhead gene. Additionally, I rebranded and marketed the Kull Youth Center at the Ocean City Tabernacle. After the renovation, I became it's lead Leasing Manager, generating over $138,000 in a short 4 months. Utilizing my marketing and social media skills, I co-founded a profitable fashion blog in 2014, collectively gaining over 20K followers and have since founded my solo blog She's Red Haute, a fashion blog for redheads, which made its debut at New York Fashion Week this past February. Most recently, I have assisted Chess at 3, the first chess company to teach 3 year olds chess, with their Story Time Chess board game Kickstarter. Within the first 12 hours we achieved our pledge goal of $30,000 and ultimately generated almost $73,000 within the campaign. We also were awarded "Project We Love" and "New & Noteworthy" on Kickstarter.
My hope is that someone will find happiness through my wide scope of skills and that they will be inspired to go after their own dreams.
