“Receiving the Legacy Robe is such an honor! I remember hearing about the robe ceremony when I was a little girl and I thought it sounded so magical. And now, getting to be a small slice of the legacy feels incredibly surreal and special. ”

How I Got My Equity Card: “When I lived in California, I went (as a non-union member) to the ECC for Wicked in LA. Six months later I received a call that I got the job on Broadway and they would need me to start days later. I packed a suitcase, got on a plane, and never looked back! That's how I got my Equity card!”
