Willams started performing at a very young age in regional theatre and landed her first professional role in a cult musical that was produced by well known producer Cameron Mackintosh, the London producer of such hits as Les Miserables, Cats, Miss Saigon, Phantom Of The Opera, Hamilton, just to name a few.

She received her B.A. in theatre performance from California State University, Long Beach. After college, she lived in Seattle for a number of years and performed throughout the city and traveled around the Northwest performing in an educational theatre troupe.

After returning to Los Angeles, she continued doing more theatre such as Ralph B. Peña’s evocative 1996 play Flipzoids starring Becca Godinez, and in 2009 was nominated “Leading Female Performance” for her work in Boni B. Alvarez’s dramedy, Ruby, Tragically Rotund by LA Weekly.

Currently seen as ‘Nicole’ on the critically raved Baskets starring Louie Anderson and Zach Galifianakis on FX.  The show is renewed for a fourth season with a series return premiere date in 2019.
