I was always the storyteller.
As a child in West Michigan I was the emotive little ballerina and the dramatic singer in music class. When we moved my parents encouraged me to audition for the local community theatre and I found myself at home under the bright lights and among the smells of scene-shop sawdust and hairspray. I grew into a high school drama kid dancing in the musicals, and playing Juliet my Junior year. Then I attended Grand Valley State University and earned my BA in Theatre, performing in their fall Shakespeare Festival all four years and earning an Irene Ryan nomination for my performance as Olivia my Senior year.
Entering the professional theatre world after moving back from Grand Rapid, I have been fortunate to have performed with Shakespeare in Detroit, Shakespeare Royal Oak, The Michigan Shakespeare Festival's High School Tour, Pigeon Creek Shakespeare Company, Roustabout Theatre Troupe, The Penny Seats, Theatre Nova, PencilPoint TheatreWorks, Tipping Point Theatre’s Sandbox Play Festival, Two Muses Theatre and The Dio. My most recent credits include King John (Hubert De Burgh/ Citizen of Angiers/ Lady Faulconbridge) with Puzzle Piece, Significant Other (Vanessa) with The Ringwald, and Silent Sky (Margaret Leavitt) with Williamston Theatre.
When not onstage I enjoy working in theatre education for teens, listening to music and going to concerts, reading horror books/watching horror movies and working at Argus Farm Stop- a year round farmers market in Ann Arbor. Support Local Food!
I am so grateful for the support I have received all my life to pursue my passion in the Theatre. For my parents and my sister Mary Dilworth (who is also a professional actor), for my highschool drama teacher and very dear friend Amanda Malo, for my actor/director/playwright friends and now for Luna and Bailey for welcoming me into Slipstream.
