About | Description:
Auditioning, aside from acting, is it’s own unique art form. It’s about breaking the mold and proving to casting directors and producers that you’re an even better choice than what they had imagined. There are countless times I was told I “wasn’t right” for a part and then booked it! My clients study with me before every audition because of the standout response they receive from casting directors, producers and even fellow actors. I’m proud to say that the only students I have are long-term relationships. I work with them to avoid the pitfalls of making obvious choices. The top two comments I often hear from my clients are that I make auditioning fun and that casting has never responded to them the way they do after working with me. I will help you gain the confidence and the ability to make choices unique to you. Whether you are brand new to this or have been working for years, I love finding and showcasing your excellence.
I look forward to working with you.
I have been coaching my friends and referrals for 18 years. I originally started because my friends were constantly asking me what I'm doing in my auditions, how am I booking all the time.... So I started to coach them, and it was so gratifying watching them put my tools to work. The more they got call backs and bookings the more exciting it became for all of us!!!! It started off as a hobby whenever I was free. It is a huge passion of mine. :)
Skills | Talents
I have been a working actress in Hollywood for 20 years.
On my second audition ever, I booked a role on the WB sitcom "Unhappily Ever After "and appeared in more than 30 episodes over the following 3 years. I have since worked steadily in television and film, including 5 years as Heather Tupperman on the NBC series Providence. I have been lucky enough to make a living pursuing my passion and for that I am grateful every day.
I am a strong believer in "luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity." I feel many aspiring actors sabotage their careers by letting fear paralyze their natural excellence. My strengths as a coach are working with my clients to break through their fears and get them excited to do what they love, helping them understand that they are not competing with anyone else for a role, and teaching them how to go into an audition and not only get noticed, but also be remembered.
I ALSO work with kids who are a bit shy, get out of their shells!! :)
