As the Artistic Director of Girl Be Heard, I get to use what I’ve learned as a performer to assist in helping girls achieve their potential and to become leaders in their communities. You can help to make a difference in a girl’s life by donating here.
I’ve been recurring on BULL as Judge Foley. So much fun. The cast, especially Michael Weatherly and Freddy Rodriquez have been generous and kind. I especially get to work with terrific actors like Lisa Arrindell. Lucky me.
