Tennessee Theatre Association is a marvelous organization that does so much to foster opportunities in theatre for young people across the state. It is very exciting to be part of the yearly conference - to see eager young people come together to audition, to exchange ideas, to learn and be inspired. I was deeply honored to be recognized by them in 2010 and look forward to participating in future activities.

"The [conference] is a good opportunity for students in high school and those who are moving into their first year of college. Having professionals like myself bring real world experience in an invaluable resource to have access to as they decide if indeed a career in theater, TV and film is the right move."
