After a 25-year editorial career in publishing, magazines, and newspapers, I began working as a professional theater, TV, film, and commercial actress and print model in fall 2012. Recent film work includes Doctor Watson (day player cameo) in Emmy-nominated director Paul Starkman's feature film Wheels (2018), and Matty's Aunt (day player) in Romina Schwedler's The Visit, a 2016 multiple-award-winning film short starring Academy Award-nominee June Squibb. I've just finished my fourth season (75 episodes!) as a recurring State Department Advisor (core ensemble) on Madam Secretary (CBS) and had a small principal role in a scene with Téa Leoni in episode 7. I played a recurring Inmate on the first five seasons of Orange Is the New Black (Netflix) and have been featured in many other TV shows and movies, playing everything from a homeless woman to a wealthy Theater Patron/Tony Voter friend of Eileen Rand, Anjelica Huston's character, on Season 2 of Smash. Recently, I was featured as a Senate Judiciary Staffer in a skit on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and as the Cabaret Script Supervisor in Fosse/Verdon (FX) . I also recently had a very successful run as Mrs. Higgins in New Bedford Festival Theatre's My Fair Lady starring Peter Gregus (Broadway's Jersey Boys) at the Zeiterion Theatre. A former theater critic/feature writer for Backstage, Stages, and The Providence Journal, I have penned juvenile biographies (Amelia Earhart, Anne Hutchinson), written for Time-Life Books, and done editorial work at Condé Nast, The New York Review of Books, and many other NYC newspapers, magazines, and publishing companies. I'm currently working on several original plays and screenplays. I'm a proud member of SAG-AFTRA, Actors' Equity, the Dramatists Guild, and New York Women in Film and Television.
