She has worked as a Director, Dramaturg, Youth Theatre Programmer and Producer for many years in both Ontario and Alberta. She spent 6 years as the Artistic Associate- North for Alberta Playwrights’ Network and was Artistic Associate at the Citadel Theatre for 6 years, where she co-created and directed KidsPlay @ the Citadel, a series of plays for children and their families.
Directing and Dramaturgy credits include several plays at Concrete Theatre including the very popular Lig & Bittle; Beneath the Ice by Eva Colmers; The Book of Ashes by Emil Sher at the Northern Alberta International Children’s Festival; The Mommy Monologues, written by 10 women and produced at SkirtsAfire 2017; Under Cover by Mark Haroun; The Invention of Romance by Conni Massing and An Almost Perfect Thing by Nicole Moeller, both produced at Workshop West Playwrights’ Theatre.
