Bainbridge Island native and LA transplant, entrepreneur, lifelong learner, adventurer, and mother of two amazing daughters, Dove Cameron and Claire Hosterman.

I spend my days creating and producing the Hometown to Hollywood podcast, developing the best online programs to help young actors succeed, consulting one-on-one with young actors and their families, speaking, writing blog posts, researching, and working on my next book. I also spend as much time as I can with my kids, who are my favorite people in the world.

I love poetry, coffee, and peonies. I’m honored that many top LA acting coaches call me the leading guide for young actors, and Dove Cameron says I’m the “best person on this planet.”
