After college she spent the last two summer working at Arkansas Repertory theatre as an education intern. During her time away, she had the opportunity to go back to Elkins, West Virginia and participate with Warner’s Bros and The Old Brick Playhouse Company as a Dancing Chef on their Polar Express Train.
