I began my career working as a photojournalist in third world countries, writing with a focus on global poverty. After three years of working as a photojournalist in Haiti, Ecuador, and Nepal, I moved to Los Angeles to continue my love for storytelling.

My greatest passion is to abolish the stigma surrounding mental illness. This dream fueled my desire to be an actress, telling stories that bring hope and healing to the viewer, pursue stand up comedy finding humor in the pain, and eventually lead me to create Funny People Cry Too, a digital network devoted to healing and humor.


I have been an actress on Nashville, Deadly Sins, My Crazy Ex, and was the girl in Fall Out Boy’s Music Video of The Year “Uma.” I have put my comedic skills to use in stand up comedy performing at venues such as The Comedy Store, Ice House, and Flappers. As a host, I have represented over 20 brands in the commercial world and have been a spokesperson for educational and training videos for major corporations.

Best known as a mental health expert, I am the

host and founder of the digital network:  Funny People Cry Too, a live storytelling and interview show where individuals share their personal stories about mental health to help end the stigma surrounding mental illness.
