Libby is a service-minded actor, singer, and voice over artist currently performing at Barter Theatre in Abingdon, Virginia. 

She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting from Illinois Wesleyan University with training at the British American Drama Academy. Since graduating, Libby has been based out of Barter Theatre where she’s been grateful to perform everything from Dorothy Gale to Tiny Tim.


A Shakespeare fanatic since the age of eight, Libby has spent time performing with Illinois Shakespeare Festival and Texas Shakespeare Festival, studying the Bard’s work in London, and creating boozy Shakespeare events wherever she may roam.


Away from the stage you can find Libby reading, hiking, embroidering, drafting tiny house plans, searching for the nearest Culver’s, and eating with her big, passionate Greek family.
