About Me and My Experience
I'm excited to work with your child on-set and at their auditions. Many times I have been ecstatic that my child booked a role, and then five minutes later I'm wondering, "how I'm going to make this work?"
I decided to create Take 5 to help other families who struggle with the flexibility to take their child set. We all want to see our children excel at a craft they enjoy, and we all make many sacrifices to help them thrive. I believe acting is a great way for children to grow and experience the working world, while gaining confidence and great life skills.
I'm here to help out when you find yourself in a pinch.
I am the mother of two young actors who have been acting since the age of 4. I have experience chaperoning on set for film, TV, commercials, and voiceover studios. Some of these productions include: Once Upon a Time, Cheerios, Beyond, Wayward Pines, When Calls the Heart, Fisher Price, Kohler, Audi, Midnight Sun, Sonic the Hedgehog, Ninjago, Virgin River, The Good Doctor, Home Before Dark, and a number of Hallmark Movies.
I have clear Driving Abstract and Criminal Record Check.
I have also attended a workshop with Dr. Yalda T. Uhls.
UCLA Child Psychology Researcher and Educator.
Dr. Uhls discussed the significance of life skills and self care for on-set families. Having a healthy mindset, adequate exercise, and proper nutrition is very important for your child actor. Dr. Uhls emphasized how meaningful it is for kids to have a trusted adult available for them to talk to, and to help them resolve possible stressors, either on-set or in life. It's important your child develops a healthy sense of self-worth, competence, and responsibility, while still maintaining a normalcy in their life off-camera. We have to remember they are still kids.

while still allowing your child the opportunity to excel with their love of acting.
