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.

the screen-play version of my play Sky…Diamonds  (see trailer at Theatre& Scripts ) has been accepted into the the  WRPN Women’s International Film Festival 

This is the play I wrote way back in OR in 2000? that was generously supported by OHSU at the time and had two performances of a well rehearsed reading at Coho Theatre.Years later ( 2014?) it won a playwriting competition in Flagstaff which meant a full production and I got to play the lead.

It has been close to my heart for a long time.

Here is the Logline..
From inside the mind of an eccentric, very smart Woodstock-era grandmother with advanced Alzheimer’s we journey backwards ten years, piecing together her life-story as issues of family, values and communication surface while 3 generations grapple with her changing state.

Thank you all who have been part of this journey – whatever happens from here I am HAPPY
