BEHIND THE LENS

I am an actress, model, and currently still work as a registered nurse. I received my bachelors in Nursing from the University of Texas at Arlington, and my Masters in Business Administration from Texas Woman's University. As for acting, I have trained with Marjorie Ballentine in her Masters Scene study program as well as privately coached, and at the critically acclaimed Ivanna Chubbuck studio here in Los Angeles. 

 

Before moving to Los Angeles I had some small success with commercial work, independent films and a co-star role on Friday Night Lights on NBC. Since moving to LA, I am probably best known for my starring roles as  "Khadijah Cleaver" in Cleaver Family Reunion , and "Rita Loss" in Airplane vs. Volcano

(also starring Dean Cain, Robin Givens and Lawrence Hilton Jacobs). Both of these films are available to view on Netflix and Amazon, so please check it out if you have a chance. In 2014 I was honored to be nominated for best actress in the Bronze Lens Film Festival, for my work as “Sylvia” in Silhouettes. More recently I have been filming a web series entitled " The Value of Ex," which has done very well in web festivals in the states and internationally, and I have recently been featured on comedy sketches with Daniel Tosh of Tosh. 0 on Comedy Central.I will also appear in the 2015 Lionsgate film American Bad Boy, starring Katt Williams.
