I studied acting at Emory University where I received my BA summa cum laude with highest honors in Theatre Studies. Since then, I have continued to act locally in the Atlanta film and theater community as well as work behind the camera after receiving my MFA in Directing for Film and Video from Columbia College Chicago. I have studied improv and sketch writing with Dad’s Garage, stand-up comedy with Lace Larabee’s Laugh Lab Comedy Class, and the Meisner Technique at Pinch ‘n’ Ouch Theatre where I was an associate artist from 2013-2016. I have also been a participating playwright and actor in the One Minute Play Festival since 2014. In 2016, I co-founded the comedy company Critical Crop Top, with which I have written, directed, and performed in films like 80s Dating Video Remix, War on Christmas, and The Mother Load Web Series, in live sketch comedy shows, and I am a producer and co-host of The Feminine Mistake Podcast. My latest web series, Vera's Workplace Sensitivity Training Series premiered in January 2018.
