Her time at UBC:
“My time at UBC was a time of discovery. I entered the BA Theatre program after completing the fine arts program at Langara College with a strong desire to go into Theatre and Arts Education. After my first year of taking theatre courses, specifically the 99-courses (wardrobe running, scenic painting and set building) and stage managing my first production, “Shadows of Troy”, directed by Tom Scholte, I quickly re-directed my attention to the BFA program with a specialization in Stage Management and Scenic Painting. The individuals I met and worked with, both students and staff members, were incredible resources and supports. Through my time at UBC, I made strong, lasting relationships and connections that helped catapult my career into theatre. One lasting memory was being given the opportunity to stage manage Chris McGregor’s MFA production, “The Idiots Karamazov”. With a team of almost 50 student actors, assistant stage managers and crew, this show was one for the books! My time at UBC prepared me for the many challenges we all face as theatre artists equipping me with the tools needed to overcome these challenges thus forging a lasting career in the arts.”
