Notes

ACTRESS & VOICE-OVER ARTIST I am a fit & healthy, grounded person with a sense of humour & a perfectionist streak. I come with a disciplined work ethic. I am driven to continue growing and fine tuning my skills. This is why I remain constantly active in both acting training and working in the Wellington Industry. Brought up in NZ & Europe, I went on to study a BSC/BN, working as a general, psychiatric & management Nurse. Exposed to broad life experience, I have a fascination with societies characters. My real world experience guides both a wide variety of roles and my pragmatic approach to life. I am seeking roles in both commercial & non-commercial settings that will continue to challenge me. I take direction well & I am dedicated to continue developing & working hard in this Industry!
