New badass things
My first stop out on the road full time will be in Scottsbluff, Nebraska! I'll be spending my summer at Theatre West as their 2021 season props master as well as a part of the acting company. Looking forward to getting back on stage this summer!
Bye bye for now NYC! I'll be back! Hello St. Louis - it's nice to see ya! While industry opportunities remain virtual I decided it was time to travel! I'm temporarily based in St. Louis but will traveling full time in the spring of 2021! Follow along the adventure on my Instagram as my aussie puppy and I take on the country in a 20 ft camper!
Need a fitness trainer? I'm your girl! Due to the pandemic, I had an obscene amount of time on my hands. While I continued working on my craft through virtual projects and classes I also studied for and passed my Personal Training exam through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and started O'Connell Coaching, my online personal training business. Athletics and
fitness are things I've always been passionate about and the lifestyle of an being an artist has inspired me to help others find their strength mentally and physically! Check out my website here for more info!
Produce virtual live stream concert: check! The nonprofit I work for in Hell's Kitchen is still operating as an essential service, providing food and other emergency items during COVID19. I wanted to figure out a way to still create art with my friends while providing some financial assistance to Rauschenbusch Metro Ministries. Thus, Do it For Love: a livestream virtual concert was born! I had a great time producing and hosting this event and we raised over $1200 to support RMM and their emergency relief efforts! I am excited to do more in the future! Click the link above to watch the full concert as well as donate to a great cause.
The Open Jar Institute will be hosting their first residency alumni cabaret this month and I am excited to be performing my first original song, "Here We Go" as a part of the event. Open Jar has taught me to always take the leap - I couldn't think of a better place to premiere this piece!
I'll also be a guest singer for the second year and a row for the "Fight With Your Art" cabaret benefiting the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Research Facility!
Christmas is my favorite time of year, and I'm excited to be spending this holiday season with the RWS Entertainment Group family at Kings Dominion in Doswell, VA for Winterfest! Looking forward to spreading holiday cheer singing some iconic Christmas tunes in the park!
