In 2001 at the age of 10, she was cast in the title role of Annie at Ozark Actors Theatre in Rolla, Missouri.[1][2]

She graduated from Sullivan High School and then attended the University of Michigan for two years before leaving the program to star as Campbell in the touring production of Bring It On: The Musical.[3]


After her sophomore year at the University of Michigan, she appeared as Margot in 2011 production of Legally Blonde at The Muny.[4] It was during this time she learned she had been cast as the lead role of Campbell in the touring production of Bring It On: The Musical.[5] After its national tour, Bring It On: The Musical then transferred to Broadway in 2012 with Louderman, making her Broadway debut.[6]
