A few words about/from Willow:

"I have always loved doing theatre since I was little. I started out by doing my local children’s Theatre. I grew up in a really small town called Swink Colorado. It’s in Southeast Colorado and my hometown currently has a population of about 600 people. I participated in my church’s children’s and adult choir as well as my voice teacher’s community children’s Choral. I attended high school in our neighboring town, La Junta. I did the school plays, was on the Cheer Squad, was in FBLA, and performed for my school’s Forensics/Speech and Debate Club. That’s really where I decided to commit more to the arts. I’ve also always loved writing and creating. I’m currently working on a manuscript for a book I want to publish someday, but I also just love to write about anything. I also am a huge history geek. I have always loved learning and watching documentaries. My love for it has been especially helpful since I am also working as the dramaturg for Titanic. I would also love to pursue a career in dramaturg work as well in my future. "
