Biography

Beginnings
I was born on March 3rd, 1982, in Ely, Minnesota – the temperature outside was 37 degrees below zero! At the time, my Dad was the Program Director for the Minnesota Outward Bound School, which is an outdoor, adventure-based program. We lived 17 miles out of town near the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in a little cabin on the Kawishiwi River.

I come from a very outdoorsy, adventurous, and extremely active family! I have lived in 6 states, but I like to call Boulder, Colorado home because that is where I spent the most time in one place. My closest, and best friend, Jesse Peterson, is from Boulder, and we have the greatest and wackiest memories from all our years together. She was actually on the cover of Jump magazine with me in 1998.

The question I get asked the most is, “How did I get started in acting?” As a young girl, I took dance lessons, gymnastics, and voice lessons. I was also influenced by a lot of musical family members, so getting in involved in local musical productions was a pretty natural progression for me. Read More
