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 that specializes and training actors. Athletics and fitness are things I've always been passionate about and the lifestyle of being an artist has inspired me to help others find their strength mentally and physically!
