After being fired from every office job I've had, I decided to embrace my inner talents. Those God-given gifts everyone is talking about. Never knew what it meant, until I actually tried DOING what it was I love: acting, comedy, and storytelling. I am a firm believer in the human experience, and that is what comedy is about - saying what's on your mind and in your heart. I am here to make everyone I interact with feel connected to their life experience and laugh our way through the pain. Since shifting from the 9-5 life, I've produced the 5-9 Show at Comedy Bar, a place where the soul comes alive and a popular and intimate show experience. It's like sitting in my living room. As a Second City alumni I've used my training and expertise in acting and all of my creative endeavours. My newest passion is Comedy Camps for Kids. These camps will help shape the future for thinking, feeling children, that can eventually shift the consciousness of humanity.

A bit about the teacher:

She’s a Second City Alumni from the Toronto Training Centre and has done comedy all over Toronto and New York. She is one of the top female show producers downtown of The 5-9 Show which is a sell out every time. Being the eldest of 4 siblings, she has inspired and invigorated those around her to live their most authentic life, following their own personal joys, and CHEERLEADING THEM ALL THE WAY THERE!!! Your kids will LOVE her. Just watch n wait.
