    Additional Skills

    From working in the corporate environment I have experience of delivering presentations, induction and training days and I am CIPD qualified.

    About me

    I have developed my acting ability through over 40 years of experience. I am currently one of a comedy sketch trio called Three Menopausal Maids. We established the trio in 2017 and took our self-written shows to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2018 and 2019 as well as to The Canal Cafe, London and various local venues. I also write and perform my own solo comedy sketches, the most recent project being a solo show in January 2020 and the launch of my new YouTube Channel during Lockdown. Although much of my experience is in theatre I have recently taken on corporate filming work, short films and music videos and I was delighted to be told I am very natural on camera. Whilst I have a passion for making people laugh I am a particularly empathetic and compassionate person which helps me to make an emotional impact and take the audience on a journey. I am keen to pursue both theatre and filming projects.

    Acting experience

    I completed a 'Get Into Acting' course at the Actors Centre March - April 2016 and an intensive 12 week acting course with Gailie Pollock of Contexture Theatre commencing March 2017. This included Meisner, Stanislavsky and Brecht.

    Please see my CV for more detailed information but as an overview I have undertaken theatre roles such as Shirley Valentine, Rita in Educating Rita and Amanda in Snake in the Grass. I have also written and performed my own comedy work in solo shows. I am one of a comedy sketch trio who took shows to The Canal Cafe, London and Edinburgh 2018 and 2019 with sell-out success. The film work I have done includes a commercial, a short film, music videos and corporate.
