Nice to meet you! From scene study and monologue coaching to public speaking strategies for professionals. Acting lessons catered to your needs -- together let's create a comfortable, safe space to grow and have fun. Experience with all levels and ages!

Theatre professional & storytelling specialist based in Pittsburgh. I have worked as a Teaching Artist in New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and North Carolina at companies such as the Children's Theatre of Charlotte, the University of Pittsburgh and the Greater Hartford YMCA YArts program.

From private coaching college students' monologues to teaching large groups of elementary students how to tell a story... the list goes on and I feel very fortunate to learn something new from each classroom, city and student.

My degree is in theatre performance and marketing from the University of Pittsburgh as well as significant training from the Stella Adler Studio of Acting in New York City. I have performed in various productions, staged readings and festivals around the country -- from professional theatre for young audiences to classical texts to contemporary TV pilots.

Hi there! My name is Claire and I am a theatre enthusiast living in Pittsburgh. I have a degree in theatre performance and marketing from the University of Pittsburgh as well as intensive training from the Stella Adler Studio of Acting in New York City.

I have performed in various productions, staged readings and festivals around the country -- from professional theatre for young audiences to classical texts to contemporary TV pilots.

Currently, you can find me managing the marketing and public relations for Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre School, or creating original works for audiences that benefit from sensory and autism-friendly strategies with Jumping Jack Theater.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Claire Is Not Only Experienced But Shows Passion When She Teaches. She Has Taught As Young As 7yrs Old And Has A Way With Kids That Is Nothing Short Of Magical. I Had The Pleasure Of Working Along Side Her And My Biggest Admiration For Her Is Her Passion And Her Strong Desire To Be Unique.
