Louisa was born in Dublin, Ireland to two lovely parents and a feisty big brother. She grew up in Burlington, Ontario, and now resides in Grimsby. She fell in love with musical theatre at a very young age and her family encouraged and supported her wholeheartedly throughout the years. She graduated from the Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts and won the Acting Award for the schools triple threat competition. She journeyed out west in 2002 and fell in love with the Rockies and her amazing hubby Matt. She spent seven years performing throughout Alberta and British Columbia, camping, hiking and kayaking whenever possible.
Since her move back to Ontario in 2009 she has been very busy performing and taking on new challenges as a writer, choreographer, voice-over artist, and producer. She was a long time cast member of 'The Oh Canada Eh Dinner Show' in Niagara Falls which sadly closed its doors Spring of 2020 after 26 wonderful years. Several cast members and staff joined forces with Lee Seigel to bring to life New Werx Productions. After 20 long dark months we are delighted to have our first live show in the books. MTI's All Together Now, a Global fundraiser at the First Ontario PAC in St Catharines! Stay tuned for our next big show!
Louisa is also an artist educator. Her teaching journey began in 2007 at The Arts Connection in Richmond, B.C. Since then Louisa has worked with Future Steps Burlington (teaching Ballroom and Latin Dance within the Halton and Peel School Boards), Little Rebels Music and Development Classes (for babies, toddlers and their caregivers), The Music Depot, Grimsby’s Fun School of Music, City of Pelham Summer camps, Stagecoach Performing Arts School and Carousel Players!
Louisa has worked extensively as Cabaret and concert soloist. You may have also seen her featured at The Fairmont Vancouver Airport Hotel, The Twilight Jazz Series, Harry's Jazz Bar, Choralis Camerata, Grimsby Farmers Market, Mahtay Cafe , Toronto's Bread and Circus and in various Churches, concerts and fundraisers in the Niagara Region. Over the past few years she has joined forces with St Catharine's funny man Craig Maguire, Jordan's songbird Melissa Marie Shriner and Burlingtons favorite Celtic Band The Colonial Boys.
She also enjoys being on set! Louisa has appeared in several commercials, music videos, short films and web series. Keep an eye out for her in MRPs 'Steakager' explainer.
