Meet the Team
Hailing from Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, I began performing professionally at the age of 14! At the age of 20 I moved to Toronto to follow my musical career, which ended up changing my life forever. My stage musical credits include The Who's Tommy (where I met my wife Lisa), Rent on Broadway where I played Roger, the heart broken romantic lead. The Lion King then welcomed me as Ed the Hyena in this Broadway smash hit. Declining an offer for the Original cast of Mamma Mia, its subsequent tour and final Broadway destination, I stayed with my family in Toronto starring in West Side Story, Grease and countless TV spots and commercials. Throughout my career I have worked alongside many top name performers and acts such as singing with Michael Buble, opening up for Zac Brown in Atlanta, acting opposite Owen Wilson, Tyler Perry, Howie Mandel, Eugene Levy and many others. I now make my living in the USA and Canada as owner of Party Nation Entertainment and performing for hundreds each week.
I grew up in Georgia and as long as I can remember, always loved performing. As soon as I could go out on my own I moved to New York and started auditioning. In 1995 I got my first big break and was cast in The Who’s “Tommy” alongside my now husband of 22 years Dean Balkwill. My other credits include Beauty and the Beast as well as performances in Europe across Canada and the US and on several crew ships. In 2002 I was cast singing and dancing with Catherine Zeta-Jones in the Oscar-winning film Chicago directed by Rob Marshall. Rob Marshall was so taken by my performance he cast me in the first national tour of Cabaret where I understudied Terry Hatcher as Sally Bowles. I now make my living as mom to 4 kids and specializing in entertainment for many brides, event coordinators and party planners. I love every minute of it!
