I am a New York-based actress and fun fact, I was named after actress Natalie Wood. I graduated from Penn State University with degrees in Theatre Performance and Broadcast Journalism and a minor in International Studies. WE ARE! PENN STATE!
My passion is story telling. When I was young I wrote and starred in my own backyard plays. In middle school I attended theatre and acting schools, and throughout high school I performed in my original short plays and starred in various musicals. By studying acting and journalism in college, I nurtured my love for telling the stories of others through acting, entertainment, multimedia and writing platforms.
My passion to change lives through entertainment is derived from my experience of growing up with my severely handicapped brother. His smile after I perform inspires me to do what I love every day while also impacting the lives of others.
