Kelsey is an actor, singer, and devisor, performing with equal amounts of strength and spunk. Her curiosity for human behavior leads her to strive for a deep understanding and truthful portrayal of every role she tackles. An affinity for travel and adventure have provided her with an enriched perspective which she employs when making discoveries and developing characters. She fluctuates between a youthful exuberance, a powerful grace, and a charming awkwardness. She thrives in a collaborative rehearsal environment and is always interested in telling new stories with diverse viewpoints.
In the classroom, Kelsey loves learning from her students, exploring their worlds, and discovering new ways to engage and entertain young minds. She believes the skills one gains in theatre and improv classes apply to all aspects of life and therefore all students can benefit from a theatre education. She uses improvisation to teach creativity, communication, collaboration, and leadership skills while ensuring her students have a fun and fulfilling experience. As a teaching artist, Kelsey has directed and choreographed many Children's, Junior, and full productions, in addition to her work in the classroom and as an acting/audition coach.
When not acting, Kelsey can be found running the streets of Philadelphia or the paths of Valley Forge Park, knitting and crocheting her own line of nerdy accessories, geeking out about the new Marvel or Star Wars movie, reading new theories/histories of Harry Potter, and baking healthy indulgent treats.
