An alumni of the O’Neill Puppetry Conference, she has performed her own work at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the New Orleans Fringe, and the Puppeteers of America National Festival.  She loves dirty jokes and dancing, and her most important achievement to date is having eaten all 100 of Buzzfeed’s “100 Candies to Try Before You Die.”
