My name is Stacy and I am a 2011 graduate of Minnesota State, Mankato. I graduated with a Bachelor's in Theatre and a minor in Film Studies. Since graduating, I have moved back to the Madison area and I have worked with multiple Theatre companies and individuals needing a Dialect Coach for class work, professional performances, or simply for fun.

Most recently, I was hired to teach Standard and Yorkshire British for a production of The Secret Garden, multiple dialects in Sweeney Todd, and multiple dialects within Bower City Theatre's production of Jekyll & Hyde (which can be found on YouTube). I am very proud of all of these productions and the hard work the cast put into their craft.
