A bit about me…


I am a creative and driven facilitator, who truly believes in the benefits of learning through theatre, particularly for young people. I specialise in drama and music, and use these skills to bring everyday classroom topics to life. As an adaptable facilitator I can tailor activities to suit any group, and my infectious enthusiasm encourages young people to engage, to imagine, and to uncover new levels of learning and creativity within themselves.
As well as facilitating, I am an actress and singer (specialising in musical theatre, contemporary and light opera) with natural movement skills and rhythm. I creative writing and storytelling, and enjoy using puppetry and mask in my work
