Were there any professors that really made a positive impact for you? 

There were many. That was the allure of the school. The amazing force that is Robin Armstrong, who directed me in my first production, promoted unbridled joy and precision. Shannon Kearns, Craig “Yo” Erickson, Tom Hull, and of course, the one and only Gail Cronauer. She is it. I learned more from her than she’ll ever know. She turned it from “the thing” you did to “the thing” you are.
