I am a storyteller and spend most of my time writing plays, short stories and plugging away at my sung-thru musical, Hushabye. Hushabye had a one woman show (prequel) that was accompanied by a blog of the same: Who’s My Girl. Also in development is a full length play called Home, a play close to my heart about a family traversing the landscape of their mother’s descent into Alzheimer’s. You can read more about this experience starting here.
As a professional actress and singer (Née Phillips), I have worked in New York, Los Angeles, London and many regional theaters throughout the USA. I was a child actor starting at age 4 studying all forms of dance, theatre, and art and received a BFA, (specialization in acting), from Southern Methodist University. I then spent a summer at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art where I received a certificate of study in the specialization program: Acting Shakespeare. For a full list of professional credits contact me.
I have been an acting coach and mentor for adults and youth for 30+ years, with a heart for enriching the lives of developing performers and professionals wishing to stay in creative shape. I am certified at the highest level in early childhood music education through Music Together, created Creative Dramatics with Fleur (improv and music theatre for youth) as well as Look Up Music & Creative Arts LLC for coaching and teaching.
I have a heart for encouragement, mercy and spiritual motherhood. I am a spiritual director and prayer intercessor. Appointments and prayer requests always welcome.
Most importantly, I am blissfully married to my husband and first love (after a 28 years separation!), Peter Dobbins. We reside in Pennsylvania and produce theatre in NYC through Peter’s Company, The Storm Theatre.
