Billie has written and performed her own original work at the Seattle Fringe Festival, SPF, Liberty Deli, Thumpers and The Studios. Billie is not at all famous for Rita’s running piano ad lib in White Christmas or playing Dyanne in the first music-stand reading of Million Dollar Quartet at the coolest event of the year – the Village Theatre Festival of New Musicals- but she sure does delight in over-developing ensemble roles, making the band laugh and new works at all stages of development. Billie has been teaching many facets of musical theatre arts to all ages around and about Seattle for the last 10 years (the 5th Avenue, Freehold Theatre, Village Theatre) and has enjoyed running song interpretation/are-you-sure-you-want-to-do-this-with-your-life-? master classes at schools far and wide. Billie is also a Training Consultant at Ovation Communication specializing in professional presence, storytelling for business, emotional intelligence — with a unique twist, and mastering the art of human interaction. Billie takes life lessons where ever she can get them with an emphasis on the wisdom of Maya Angelou and Leonard Cohen.
