A little about... 
                                     ...A Doolittle that does A LOT!

 

 I love telling stories and making people feel and think differently about the world. 

 

Catch me in NETFLIX's latest thriller RATTLESNAKE, starring Carmen Ejogo, directed by Zak Hilditch.

 

I also recently got to play Dr. Andrews in AMC's new thriller NOS4A2. 

 

Other credits include: Recurring as Ghost Nurse Miranda on AMERICAN HORROR STORY. Think creepy, bloody and terrifying. I also appeared in season 6 of SCANDAL on ABC, in scenes opposite Scott Foley & Joe Morton. I am constantly shooting something - whether it's a funny original series like "Get Used to It", "The Salesman" or "The Struggle Is Real" (to name a few) or shooting a disturbing short like "Remember What I Said". 

I was born in Rhode Island - yeah, 401 (That's our area code! We're the smallest state and only have one! Being the smallest, we have A LOT of state pride!). As a New Englander, I love lobsters and the beach - I literally have a strategy on exactly how to eat a lobster. Ask me about it - I'm an expert! Also, fun fact - small state, small family. I'm an only child! 

 

I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and left RI when I went to college in VA. I decided not to go the conservatory route as I wanted a well-rounded education (for which I am very grateful) and majored in Theatre at the University of Mary Washington. 

 

After college, I promptly moved to "New York City, center of the universe..."

 

Some of my favorite things I worked on while in NYC were Guiding Light , Fault Lines, an O'Neil Semi-Finalist play, No Exit, and Alan Ayckborne's How The Other Half Loves, mostly cause I got to play Mary and make totally weird faces and sounds to showcase her crazy insecurities. While in NY, I co-produced world premiere One-Acts with Planet Connections Theatre Festivity for Neil LaBute, John Patrick Shanley & Winter Miller, as well as worked on the world's longest running musical The Fantasticks and co-produced an amazing children's show, Piggy Nation The Musical! (all about teaching kids how to avoid "piggy" (not nice) behavior! The show garnered rave reviews from critics and parents alike and ran for a year Off-Broadway. 

 

Now I live with my tuxedo cat BUG and my husband, a screenwriter. I am a Doolittle that does a LOT and I'm usually out and about going to the movies, the theater & the beach! My mom is a retired travel agent and from her, I have a deep love for traveling and learning about different people and cultures. My most recent travel adventures include Vietnam, Thailand and Ireland.

 

I'm often found reading, taking barre classes, hiking or hanging with BUG watching tv (he LOVES tv!). My guilty pleasures are red wine, dark chocolate, and period pieces (preferably together). I never say no to lobster, the limbo or a good dance party! I love old homes, New Englandy things, learning more about the business side of the industry and just meeting nice interesting people.

I love to volunteer and believe it's so important to give back. I recently was a part of Homeward LA, a production that raises money for the Midnight Mission with a mission to raise funds to help eradicate homelessness.

 

A proud member of SAG-AFTRA, I am also a volunteer and member of SAG-AFTRA's National Next Gen Committee (NGP) and LA local NGP. I am committed to getting younger actors involved and aware of SAG-AFTRA's resources. I'm particularly passionate about mental health advocacy for actors and have assisted in organizing multiple panels on mental health for actors.  I have also served as an elected Convention Delegate for SAG-AFTRA for two terms now. 

And that's a little about a Doolittle that does a lot!
