As a University of Washington graduate of Drama and American Ethnic Studies, she is thrilled to apply both disciplines into one venture. Along with working in the animal rescue field and at various event venues in the Bay Area, she plans to delve into playwrighting and cultivating new audiences into the love of theatre.
