Her unique specialty — applying the performing arts to the communications and relationship-building industry — brings together cutting-edge content with comedic performing talent to offer your audience entertainment, laughter and a thoroughly transformative learning experience.
Her show biz credits include: HBO’s “Sex & The City,” Caroline’s comedy club on Broadway, 27 television commercials including a Super Bowl spot, advanced training with legendary mime Marcel Marceau, major news shows, and documentary films with Academy Award winners.
