Long story short; I am an actress. I work primarily in voice over for radio and television commercials and theatre and am preparing to take on more on camera work in film and television. I moved to NYC from LA where I went to acting school because my best friend had moved here and I always wanted to give New York a shot! 7 years later and I am still here…sometimes I really miss my home state of Oregon though!
I grew up in Oregon and had the good fortune of working at an outdoor store during my first summer after starting college. I made friends with a bunch of experienced climbers while working there who taught me how to climb outdoors in beautiful southern Oregon that summer.
Kettlebell sport is still considered to be an emerging sport despite the fact that people have been lifting kettlebells in eastern Europe for centuries. The first official competition was held in Russia in the 80’s I believe but don’t quote me on that. We can find out! I am one of the most decorated lightweight American females in the sport in an event called long cycle. You can see me at the US Nationals two years ago lifting a 20kg kettlebell:
I have an illness called fibromyalgia that I was diagnosed with when I was 13. I manage my illness 100% naturally through supplementation, diet, exercise and alternate treatment modalities like acupuncture and stress management protocols like meditation. I am producing a documentary right now about fibromyalgia and other ‘invisible illnesses’ in order to increase awareness about these conditions. They are classified as invisible because the people dealing with these illnesses experience symptoms that aren’t outwardly visible to others. Other conditions that fall under this umbrella are MS, lyme, chron’s, lupus, RA, etc.
