I have worked at a variety of small professional theatres in the Twin Cities, as a director and playwright. I am the artistic director of Persistent Theatre Productions. I believe that theatre should be political and personal. Theatre is not only meant to entertain, it is meant to educate audiences. Theatre is meant to change the world. I am not afraid of directing plays with a clear social justice message. I am drawn to women’s stories above others. Women’s voices have long been silenced in Theatre, I get the most artistic satisfaction when directing plays that uplift women by telling their story. I am drawn to diversity and empowerment in everything I direct. I believe in unburying forgotten classical works that have been left out of the predominantly white male canon of dramatic literature as much as I do honoring contemporay playwrights who are fianlly giving women a voice.
