POLISH YOUR PASSION
I am the co-founder & Head College Advisor/Acting Coach at Polish Your Passion, an online-based college audition coaching organization, as well as a Guest Instructor at Oklahoma City University’s pre-college Musical Theatre summer program. Over the past 13 years, I have had the opportunity to guide hundreds of high school students through the musical theatre, acting, vocal performance, dance college selection, application, and audition process at BFA, BM, and BA programs across the United States and internationally.
My students consistently receive acceptances at a range of universities including Baldwin Wallace, Boston Conservatory, Boston University, Carnegie Mellon, Chapman, DePaul, Elon, Emerson, Ithaca, Marymount Manhattan, Northwestern, NYU Tisch, Oklahoma City University, Pace, Penn State, Point Park, Roosevelt CCPA, Shenandoah Conservatory, Stanford, Syracuse, UCLA, University of Cincinnati-CCM, University of Miami, University of Michigan, and USC.
I am fortunate enough to work with an extremely diverse high school-aged student population. My students are passionate about exploring a range of material representing their unique ethnic and racial backgrounds, socioeconomic experiences, sexual orientations, gender expressions, religions and creeds, disabilities, body image, and/or political views. I believe that the strongest college auditions are crafted, when students partner their unique voices, experiences, and artistic vision to the pieces that they are sharing through the audition process.
I am dedicated to nurturing, awakening, inspiring, and uplifting student artistic voices as I champion each student along their unique journey and impact the next generation of artists.
