I’m a fully COVID vaccinated (Pfizer) actor and voice artist based in Texas. I’m also proud to say I’m an associate member of WoVo (the World-Voice Organization) and (because I currently live in a state that is “right to work” aka non union) a dues-paying–supporting–former member of SAG-AFTRA (Ficore). (For those of you in The Biz, you may know that a person who’s FICORE and pays SAG-AFTRA dues retains his or her union number and therefore when hired on a union project it’s not necessary to do the Taft Hartley paperwork).
Born in Brooklyn, 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 and to study music, dance, and voice throughout childhood and young adulthood.
After graduating from Levittown Memorial High School, I attended Hofstra University as a Theatre Arts Performance major for three years, interrupted my studies to marry a McMillan, transferred to Colorado State University, and graduated with a BA in Speech and Theatre Arts.
Over the years, my professional career has provided me with a variety of opportunities. I’ve been a theatre arts teacher, singer-songwriter, dancer, print model, and actress in live theatre, interactive theatre, films, commercials, industrials, music videos, new media, and voice over.
My family moved to south central Texas in 1982, and I’ve been learning to appreciate pecans, the Texas Hill Country, and the rich multicultural heritage found here ever since. These days…when not working … I can often be found hanging out with my precious 11 year old grandson, working out, doing yoga, meditating, or encouraging people to vote in an upcoming election .
