Murder Abbey was named one of the top Downton Abbey parodies in The Daily Beast and called a "cri-de-coeur" by June Thomas of Slate. Murder Abbey was recommended by NPR, WhereLA Magazine, LAI'mYours.com, LAist, The New York Times and Time Out New York. In New York she was a member of the UCB Maude team Neighbor Boy and also wrote and starred in the The Palin Family All Star Revue and Election Spectacular and We Kate Shelly which Time Out NY called "silly, adroit and unique all at once". She trained in long form improvisation at UCB and studied acting at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London.
In 2010 her lifelong dream came true when she appeared on Law and Order: SVU with Ice-T (and met Coco!!!). She's also appeared in a Comedy Central promo with Mike Birbiglia, on the sitcom Love, Inc. and in Children's Hospital.
