Bio

Sierra is one of those oddball Wisconsinites. Born in Tulsa OK and raised in the great city of Madison WI, Sierra has been happy to call Chicago home for the last five years. She is the eldest of three girls and as the daughter of a music major and a theatre major, the two have always been a huge part of Sierra’s life. She has been running around on a stage since she was two years old and has been singing since before she could talk. To date, Sierra has been involved in over 60 productions!

In her time before moving to Chicago, Sierra spent her youthful years performing with virtually every theatre company in the Madison area. She was also honored to perform with the Madison Youth Choir. In her time with the choir she performed in the inaugural concert for the Madison Overture Center for Performing Arts and sang repeatedly with the Madison Symphony Orchestra and the Mt. Zion Gospel Choir. Back in school Sierra was an active member of the theatre departement where she directed a full scale production of Wuthering Heights and Little Women, in which she also performed as Beth March. She was also very active in the music department, where she was a member of the top performance choir as well as the top performing jazz choir. Needless to say, Sierra filled her life with the sound of music every day. Without music and the theatre, life would have been much too dull!

Sierra now holds a BFA from the Theatre Conservatory at the Chicago College of Performing Arts. Today, she is following the path that God lights for her and continues to pursue a professional career in the theatre in the beautiful Windy City! Since graduation she has begun her EMC membership and been fortunate enough to work on some wonderful productions. She feels incredibly blessed by all the wonderful opportunities she has already experienced and can’t wait to see what lies ahead.

As a normal muggle outside the realm of theatre, Sierra enjoys spending her time waiting for her letter from Hogwarts as she reads the Harry Potter series yet again, learning as many languages as she possibly can, or running away to the northern woods of Wisconsin to get in a little fishing, swimming, and all other fabulous outdoors adventures.

Come to the theatre with me and spend a night escaping our normal lives and delving into a land of “Once upon a time…
