I trained at The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff and have over 25 years experience as an actor and director in Theatre, TV, film and radio and am pleased to have been included as one of the top 25 most influential women in theatre in Wales, 2016.

A founder member of Mappa Mundi Theatre Company I have performed and directed many of their shows and have also worked nationally and internationally with many other theatre and production companies.

My work at UWTSD also allows me to continue my professional engagement within the performance industry, enabling me to continue to grow as a performer, a director and as an educator.

As a professional actor, I feel I can offer the students some of my experiences and insights into the performance industry and help to explore ideas of creating a truthful and believable character within the confines of a play and performance.  My work as a director allows me to understand the needs of a performer and encourage the students to explore their world, and raise their confidence to realise their full potential.
