It all started when I was in second grade when I turned on a flashlight to "light a fire" and said "There you go, Cindy. Nice and bright now." That break-through performance led to the part of "Ribsy" in Mrs. Whitman’s 3rd grade adaptation of the classic Beverly Clearly book. Through small and big roles in community and school theater I was able to hone my acting and directing skills. In 2004, I became a founding member of the Springs’ premiere improv comedy troupe "Stick Horses in Pants".
