Bio

Beth was born and raised in San Luis Obispo, CA. At an early age, her dramatic nature was unique…and a challenge for her mother. Because of this, her mother introduced her to theatre, where she thrived—and her mother enjoyed a well-deserved break.

She danced, sang, and acted her red-headed angst away performing in community theatre and professional theatre. She continued her education at Southern Methodist University where she received a BFA in theatre. Upon graduation, her mother passed away from pancreatic cancer, drawing her back to the West Coast. Back in LA, she continued doing theatre, performing as Rizzo in a European tour of GREASE, and was a back-up singer with the Brian Setzer Orchestra.

In 2005, she swapped coasts to make her Broadway debut in GOOD VIBRATIONS. She was in the original Broadway cast of LEGALLY BLONDE, the first national tour of DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS, and the show that began her writing career, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN. While playing the Madeline Kahn role, she had over an hour offstage in between scenes. So, as a method to stay awake, she started writing. Little did she know it would awaken a whole new part of her. Drawn back to LA, after her father passed, she wrote her first feature, which she was a Nicholl Fellowship semifinalist for. She was sponsored into a prestigious writing group, Safehouse by Meredith Stiehm.

She continues to act, appearing in Superstore, Hart of Dixie, Atypical, I’m Dying up Here, Fresh Off the Boat, Chance, Burn Notice, and The Bridge. She is also the proud co-creator of her band, Totsy, which she sings lead for.
