About Me

After growing up in Kansas and moving to NYC straight out of college, I happily find myself at home back in the Midwest in Cincinnati, OH.  I have had the fortune to be a Resident Ensemble Member of the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company going on 16 seasons now (holy cow!), as well as work in other wonderful theatre houses in this area, such as Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati, and the Know Theatre of Cincinnati.  I would love to work with my identical twin, the brilliant Kristen Mengelkoch, sometime soon, so I may as well plug that opportunity!  I have a huge heart for the classics, as well as a love of modern theatre and musical theatre.  Thank you for visiting my site!
