    As an artist I aim to viscerally affect my audience through embodied art. My work as a professor strives to maintain safety in intimacy on stage, amplify female voices, and develop self-care for all creators. My passion and focus is in movement-based theatre training, the physical language of movement, and a fascination with the intersection of practice and theory.
