From that experience came a deep passion and interest in acting that has culminated in 16 stage productions to date, including two professional productions and multiple lead roles. One of her most recent stage roles was a literal dream come true when she was cast in the title role of Annie. Her performance in Annie, won her the 2018 Robidoux Resident Theater Ruby Award of “Best Performance by a Youth”.
