All About Me!

Currently a BFA Musical Theatre Major and Dance Minor at Western Illinois University. Riley is your new favorite statuesque Midwesterner with an elastic, forward mix-belt. Bubbly, bright, and warm, her smile exudes joy in all she does. In her free time you can find her watching rom-coms, drinking coffee on the porch writing poetry, or thrifting for a fun new outfit.

What's next for Riley?

Riley is almost finished with her first semester of senior year at Western Illinois University where she is pursuing a BFA in Musical Theatre. This October, she had the most wonderful opportunity of playing "Diana Goodman" in Next To Normal. She has never encountered a role that has pushed her so much and felt so deeply and internally moved by the impact of the story her and her castmates were able to tell. She feels as if she is growing in every which way this semester as an artist. Next up, she is a dancer and choreographer in WIU's fall dance concert, 1968. This is her first semester choreographing, and she is beyond excited. In addition to this, she is also in rehearsals for her BFA Senior Showcase. Riley cannot wait to perform with her class and put forth all they have learned throughout their four years! More details to come!
