It’s showtime! In a few hours I will celebrate with fellow cast and crew the official premiere of, “The Street Where We Live.” It’s been a long time in the making but so worth it. This amazing local film tells an all too familiar story; one family’s journey in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. In the film I play Sheila, co-worker of Mary (Kristina Kopf), the films lead, a woman who struggles to hold her family together and maintain her dignity in the aftermath of the crisis. With so many friends and family in attendance tonight it’s sure to be a blast!
