As an Army ‘brat’, I grew up all over the U.S. and in Germany. I joined the U.S. Air Force out of high school, where I analyzed body fluid in hospital laboratories in Texas, Ohio, Colorado, and Germany. I also worked at the Ataturk International Airport for the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey. One of the highlights of my time in the military was the year I spent traveling the globe as a vocalist and dancer with Tops in Blue, a division of Air

Force Entertainment. This tour took me to over 20 countries and almost every state in the Union. After earning the rank of Staff Sergeant, I was honorably discharged and moved to Las Vegas, where I worked as a cocktail waitress at the South Point Casino. In the the spring of 2009, I became a certified Bikram Yoga instructor, and taught in Las Vegas for 4 years. I also received my BA in Dance and MFA in Theatre Performance, both from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. After spending 3 years in New York City, I relocated to Los Angeles to write and escape the east coast polar vortex.
