"She’s silly, she’s funny, but most importantly…she’s good. The same energy she uses to give you the giggles is the same alluring energy she uses to get to the root of a character and bring out the most emphatic portions of the roles she plays. She has an ability to disarm you and connect with you easily when you meet her, and that ability comes in handy as a performer."

SAN DIEGO UNION TRIBUNE: Review: Outsider stories, car plays at WoW La Jolla Playhouse's Without Walls Festival excels in human stories in nontraditional settings
"The beauty of “Car Plays” is its intimacy (which may be too close for comfort for some) and its crackerjack timing (it mostly moves with the precision of a Swiss watch). With the change in thematic style this year, “Car Plays” has come back fresher than ever, and as always, it’s such an audience favorite that it’s mostly sold out."
