I started teaching because I have a passion for teaching, as well as helping students reach their true potential. I not only teach the students looking to learn their craft, but also those looking to better their ability. My goal is to impart my knowledge and love of music, theater and speech to all of my students.
I have been a professional Actress, Show Singer, Commercial Voice-Over Artist and Teacher for the past 25 years in the Bay Area. I have a BA in Theater Arts from University of Minnesota, as well as from San Jose State University. I have studied Theater, Dance, Music, and Mime at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York. I have 30 units in "Early Childhood and Development" from DeAnza College in San Jose, CA.
I am also a member of the AFTRA, SAG and EQUITY unions.
I created and taught several theater classes including:
" Musical Reading Theater For Tiny Tots" designed for children 3-5 years;
Commercial Voice-Over Workshops; Lights, Camera Action Classes
REceived an award for outstanding voice-over for Ruth Carrunza Productions, Mountain View CA 94040
