Chelle sprouted roots in the Portland Theatre Community 15 years ago. In the time since she has had the distinct joy of collaborating with companies including Oregon Ballet Theatre, Portland Center Stage, Broadway Rose Theatre Company, Theatre Vertigo, Staged!, and Third Rail Repertory Theatre. However, her home has always been with Artists Rep where some of her favorite projects include I and You, Magellanica, Caught, Marjorie Prime, Trevor, Cuba Libre, The Skin of Our Teeth, Tribes, The Big Meal, Ten Chimneys, God of Carnage, The Lieutenant of Inishmore, All My Sons, House, Garden, Orson's Shadow, and Theatre District. The stages, (though mostly back-stages) of these companies have acquired the actual blood, sweat, and/or tears of this tenaciously passionate techie. She discovered and grew along side the individuals that make this theatre community one worth loving. After the close of this show however, she will embark on a different journey and plans to become a Nurse Midwife. Which makes this production a bittersweet one, and causes a flood of fear mixed with excitement! Chelle would like to send gratitude, love, and appreciation to her cohorts, colleagues, and friends who have supported, listened, guided, and walked with her over the years. She shall be forever lovingly indebted to her husband, family, and dear friends for all of the love and support provided. A very special thank you to Jen Raynak who welcomed her into Portland theatre, who continues to be a wise and patient teacher and dear friend. (Dear Dámaso, you got this.) Chelle is proud to be a Resident Artist with Artists Rep, and a member of Actors' Equity Association.
