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.
