Born in Brooklyn and raised on Long Island, I began my career as Judy Lynn Kamen in the first grade play, where I appeared in the role of Baby Bear. My obvious bent towards dramatic exits at bedtime led my parents to nickname me “Sarah” (Bernhardt), and my love for singing, dancing, and the spoken word led me to perform every chance I got, to study music, dance, and voice throughout childhood and young adulthood, to attend Hofstra University as a Theatre Arts Performance major, and to finally get a degree from Colorado State University, where I studied Theatre Arts Education.
Over the years, my professional career has provided me with a variety of opportunities. I’ve been a theatre arts teacher, singer-songwriter, worked live in regional theatre, danced, modeled for print, done voice over work, done brand activations, theatre, interactive theatre, and acted in films, commercials, industrials, music videos, and new media.
My family moved to south central Texas in 1982, and I’ve been based there ever since, learning to appreciate pecans, the Texas Hill Country, and the rich multicultural heritage found here.
