Maria started dancing at a young age in MN. She later attended St. Paul's Conservatory for Performing Artists. During that time, she performed at the Ordway's Center of Performing Arts in Beauty and the Beast, Singin' in the Rain, and Yankee Doodle. At this moment Maria fell in love not only with dancing but performing. Soon after, with the help of her mentor, Kerry Casserly, Maria moved to NY to study at AMDA. Quickly after graduating, Maria performed at Ogunquit Playhouse in The Music Man, Dreamgirls at the Arts Center of Costal Carolina, and started rehearsals the next day for The Radio City Christmas Spectacular. While performing she continued her studies online through The New School where she completed her BFA in musical theatre. The following year Maria performed in Carousel at Goodspeed Opera House and then again at Virginia Opera House. She has been performing in The Radio City Christmas Spectacular the past couple of years in Nashville, but recently appeared in the NYC cast! Maria is a proud member of AEA and AGVA.
