I am originally from North Andover, Massachusetts which is just north of Boston. I moved to Washington, DC on a whim in May of 2013 when I decided it was time to get out of New England. I graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a dual degree in Theater & Politics (because I figure they are the same thing ;). Before working for Old Town Trolley, I helped to start the historic walking tour company, Cambridge Historical Tours on the Harvard University campus. There I portrayed Margaret Fuller, one of America’s first women to publicly speak out for women’s rights and education. Theater is my greatest passion and I often get caught singing show tunes at my desk. I am optimistic, upbeat, and a very positive person.
Which living person do you most admire?
My mom, Gail Sheldon, is my hero. She is the most supportive, loving, and strong woman I know. I aspire to be just like her every day.
What is your favorite vacation spot?
I love traveling to places where I can be immersed in a new culture, language, or learn something new. I would love to explore more of Central America, Southern Europe, or Africa.
What or who is the greatest love of your life?
Theater is my greatest passion in life. I was introduced to the movie Grease on my 8th birthday and I’ve been singing and performing ever since.
If there is one place you would like to live besides your current city, where would it be?
There are so many places I would like to live or visit throughout my lifetime, but at this point I would love to go to Chicago. It isn’t as big as New York, it is on the water, and it has a great theater scene.
If you could choose one reality TV show to be on, what would it be?
Survivor. My family and I still watch it religiously each week. And even if I weren’t the contestant and my sister Colleen went out there instead, I would still be her “loved one” because in a challenge she knows I would eat a bug for her.
