I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. I began my acting and modeling career with the love and support of my family. I’ve appeared in numerous stage, commercial and film productions. I’m the co-owner, co-founder and co-president of Four Scorpio Productions with my husband and soul mate, William Joseph Hill. Together we have written, produced, and starred in several short films, which is on our Four Scorpio Productions / YouTube channel. We currently have over 1,700 subscribers.
I star as Valerie in our comedic web series “That Darn Girlfriend” , where I play the lovable and witty girlfriend. “That Darn Girlfriend” is an homage to the 60’s and 70’s TV shows. It’s currently In Season 2. We produced 12 episodes in Season 1. It also includes 4 episodes of Behind the Scenes. Our newest episode 5 /Season 2 is called “Candy-Gram”. “That Darn Girlfriend” has played in film festivals around the world.
I recently published my first book titled “The Next Contestant is…” which is a memoir of my game show experiences and escapades as a contestant. In my book, I also give some tips on how I used my skills, mindset and personal life lessons to get where I needed to go and how it can inspire you to do the same in your life. You can get it on Amazon in either paperback or Kindle.
My varied roles include appearing on episodes of NBC’s daytime drama “Days of Our Lives”, a dramatic turn as Michelle Morgan in “ForYou/ForMe”, Rebecca in “My Roommate the Party Planner”, self help guru Samantha Strut in “Madame Esmeralda and the Audition”, guest starred on “Dysfunctionally Organized”, and co-starred in the indie short “The Visitation” opposite Owen Teague. I also voiced the female lead in the movie “Ultraman X the Movie: Here It Comes!”
I’ve done volunteer work with children, both with the Make A Wish Foundation, and the Screen Actors’ Guild Foundation BookPALS program, where I’ve read to elementary school students. I’ve recently completed voice over work on an audio book for Learning Ally.
My Los Angeles theatre performances include “The Howie Monologues” directed by Larry Eisenberg at GRT, “Wicked Lit” (2009-2012) with Unbound Productions, and recently played Lara Lords — homeless woman/ex-lawyer in “Too Close to Home” written by Cailin Harrison and directed by Bob Telford. I’ve also performed in numerous staged readings and narrated projects with We Make Movies. I’m a member of this Los Angeles film collective, which is based in Los Angeles.
My motto is “Keep Going for the Stars”! Speaking of going for the stars… I’ve been a winning contestant on Game Shows, and I’ve also been known to find a lucky penny or two…:)
