About this pro

My coaching technique focuses on the individual - centering around physical connection to the work, finding strong material suitable to the actor, and building confidence in the material as well as the presentation. I believe anyone can be an actor, we have stories to tell, and working with what the actor brings to session we create a strong presence, confidence, and opportunities for growth. 

I love helping people become the best version of themselves. Actors are individuals, unique and all different. I enjoy pairing the right material to the actor and assisting them find the connection, and becoming more confident and successful!

    Heidi is a great coach and mentor. She is very honest, direct, and kind. With Heidi, it is more than just words, it is physicality, breath, tone, and structure. She is very detailed and will not hesitate to tell you what she thinks. She knows how to push you in all the right ways so you get results. I love working with Heidi.

  • Lexy Witcher

    Heidi is very personable, and she knows how to communicate with actors in a way that they will understand. I felt very comfortable around her, which is very important when working on something as personal as acting. She gave me the knowledge and confidence I needed for some very important auditions in my life, and I would love to work with her again in the future.

    The freedom to bring your own self to the table, and the freedom to play, while also maintaining the integrity of the characters and their stories. Each moment is full of heart and passion, and brave, honest story telling.

  • Lydia Miller

    Heidi has a lot of passion for the work she does and working with her is a very collaborative process.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I meet with the student (via phone or zoom) to get to know them and their specific goals. I design an individualized six-week session for the student. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students of all ages. My favorite students are the ones I get to encounter one on one and work toward their goals. Every actor brings their own uniqueness to the work and I love bringing that out, building confidence in others and bringing students closer to their individual goals. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What is your goal? Make it tangible and specific!
