I am proud and honored to have facilitated this healing arts production. 5 Veterans share their stories, read by actors and recorded on Zoom. A 3-month storytelling project, using the Performing Wellness process, with the Prescott VA was funded in part by the Northern Arizona Healthcare Foundation and produced by Red Earth Theatre.


My work illuminates
your self-worth
and nurtures community
through creative practical experiences.


I am a theatre artist, writer, educator, horsewoman and sometime trail runner. I believe in the power of storytelling to empower the individual and create community.
I offer workshops, live performance, individual coaching and connect  different groups together in creative endeavors specific to the given needs and circumstances.
Come and see how we can create together. I look forward to meeting you.
