"Best Actress" for Waiting Room (2011 West Village Musical Theatre Festival)
"Wickham Vocal Studios is a place like no other - right off the bat, you are shown the unconditional belief that as an artist you can achieve anything, no matter where you're starting from.
To me, WVS's philosophy is that success is where preparation and opportunity meet. Even in college, I never experienced the type of dedication that I experienced with Patrick Michael Wickham... his voice is always in the back of my head, coaching me to be positive and press on. The school has altered my beliefs in that no matter how many times someone can drill a "Method" in to your head, if you don't figure out what your edge is, and learn how to own it, doors won't open for you. I have the tools so I know how to put music together for an audition, HOW to audition, and how to make those experiences be effective for who I am and what I'm good at. Before I attended WVS, I would just sing what other people would give to me because THEY thought it was right for me - WVS gave ME the power to decide and put ME in control of my career.
