I am thrilled that you're here! I am a Dallas, TX based actor, singer, and dancer with a passion for inspiring every person I meet to step outside of their comfort zone through my non-profit organization, The Live Fearless Foundation and children's book series, Fiona the Fearless Fox. I am also currently serving as Miss Colleyville and will go on to compete for Miss Texas in June of 2023. I can't wait to get to know YOU!
My story started at age 14 with a single, fearless, decision: to compete in the Miss Texas Scholarship Organization. I was shy, insecure, and most importantly, terrified of letting the world see for me for who I was and still am today, a person with a stutter. Needless to say, competing in an organization characterized by public speaking (with a stutter) was a leap outside of my comfort zone...but it altered the trajectory of my life. In my first local competition, I stuttered while introducing myself onstage, in the interview room, and during onstage question. I was mortified, but I had a choice to make: I could continue to limit myself by hiding behind my stutter or I could live life without limits. This is where Live Fearless was born.
After several competitions, I won my first title and began taking every opportunity I could to speak in front of an audience, stutter and all! Over time I realized that as my confidence improved, so did my speaking ability, and as a positive consequence, so did my life! It all started with that fearless step outside of my comfort zone. Today, my mission is simple: to empower YOU to find comfort outside of your comfort zone in the fearless pursuit of your dreams
In 2020, I founded The Live Fearless Foundation, a 501(c)3 dedicated to providing students with life changing experiences in hopes of inspiring limitless, fearless, futures. I am also the author of a children's book series entitled, Fiona the Fearless Fox, and also serve as Miss Colleyville 2023.
In addition to my work within the Miss Texas Organization, I am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Music with in an emphasis in Music Theatre from Oklahoma City University, home to Broadway alum Kristin Chenoweth and Kelli O'Hara. Throughout my undergraduate career I have performed in numerous productions, most recently starring as Alice Murphy in OCU's MainStage Production of Bright Star. Other credits include Legally Blonde, Carrie, Spamalot!, and Jesus Christ Superstar. Professionally, I work as the Assistant Coordinator of Special Events in the office of University Advancement where I collaborate with trustees, donors, and University staff to build long-lasting relationships with the Oklahoma City University community and campus.
Outside of my work sharing Live Fearless, performing, and event planning, I LOVE spending time with family/friends, belting Taylor Swift at the top of my lungs, binge watching The Office/Parks and Rec/Schitt's Creek, and eating breakfast for dinner!!
