General Hospital, All My Children, Hope & Faith, Guiding Light


As a child, what did you dream of becoming when you grew up?

When I was a child I wanted to be a veterinarian or a marine biologist. Olympic skater. Performing was my back up plan. Ha!

How did your friends/family react when you told them you wanted to become an actress?

I performed since I was around 9 professionally (commercials, etc) so it wasn't really like a big announcement that I wanted to be an actor. I kind of just kept doing it...and my parents and family were extremely supportive of whatever I wanted to do. Thank GOD. 

What aspects of your job do you like best/least?

The best part of my job is the flexibility it provides me being a mom and wife. My least favorite part is aging on television!!

Who inspires you in the industry? daytime, Finola Hughes always inspired me. But, outside of that Julia Louis-Dreyfus. 

What aspects of your job do you like best/least?

I love the feeling of losing myself completely and becoming someone else. I dislike the constant traveling, as I’m a real home body.

You have now been on three of the most iconic shows in the genre, what made you decide to sign-up (4 year contract) with General Hospital?

Well, I've always loved General Hospital. And the part is fun and interesting because it's starting from scratch and not a re-cast. With that said, it's tough to create someone new that the fans have to get adjusted to. Thank God GH fans are welcoming and encouraging!

How do you bounce back from a personal defeat?

Move forward. Don't dwell.

How do you handle criticism when it comes your way?

When I get criticized, I try to take it with a sense of humor.  My mom always raised me not to care about what people think. I really took that to heart. 

What makes you happy??

My daughter and husband make me happy as does my family and close friends. I can never get enough of them. 

What in life is important to you?

My family is the most important thing in my life and good health!


Describe yourself in 5 words:

I'm passionate about my baby.

What do you most value in others?

I value honesty, & empathy.

Name 2 things people don't know about you:

I love my label maker and I love doing laundry.

What is your motto?

I don't have a motto, maybe I should...

What one thing do you wish to achieve in 2016?


Any advice for those wanting to become actors/actresses?

My advice is to have other interests. There is a lot of waiting for the next audition. Read books, do a play, have a second's always nice to have something else going on.
