Gina Gambony, Kim Henry, and Dylan Patterson came to her with the seeds of TFA many years ago and asked her if she’d like her students to participate— the rest is history–and also the future! She’s thrilled to serve on the board of TFA to support outreach efforts to make quality theater education accessible to all.
