About Me

Hi there!

My name is Susie W., and I'm a working professional actress in St. Louis, MO. I'm also a professional teaching artist, specializing in theatre. I graduated from Millikin University in 2013 with my BFA in Acting. Since my freshman year of college, I've worked as a teaching artist for the Shakespeare Festival of St. Louis, COCA Center of Creative Arts, Interchange Arts Program, and The Jewish Community Center's Youth Theatre Program. This year, I'll also be working with Stages on their Outreach Theatre Programs.

I specialize in Shakespearean and Classical acting, but also am extremely skilled with contemporary work, including, but not limited to stage, commercials, film, movement, voice, commedia dell'arte, viewpoints work, text analysis, characterization, and much more.

I also am very passionate about education. I've worked as a tutor in undergrad and would love to continue to do so in St. Louis! I specialize in Language Arts, English, English Literature, and any AP Literature classes. I'm also a published poet, and can easily edit and conference any essays or writing pieces one may have.
