For over 20 years, I've been teaching college theatre. I'm also a freelance director and producer, and currently serve as the Executive Director for the Tennessee Theatre Association. In the classroom I teach a range of courses including all levels of acting, directing, audition techniques and southern drama. As a producer and director my most recent projects include two plays by David Alford ("Bucky Dawes" on the ABC TV series NASHVILLE): SMOKE: A BALLAD OF THE NIGHT RIDERS, and SPIRIT: THE AUTHENTIC BELL WITCH EXPERIENCE. Since 2010 I've been on staff as the Executive Director for the Tennessee Theatre Association, the designated state-wide organization whose mission it is to support theatre artists across The Volunteer State.
I received my M.A. from Indiana University and my Ph.D. from University of Georgia. I live in Clarksville, TN with my husband.
