Bree is a trained director, stage manager, and performer. In 2013, she broke into the Houston arts world by stage managing Deborah, a new play by Houston playwright Elizabeth A.M. Keel. She has since collaborated with Mildred's Umbrella Theatre Company (company member 2014-2019, literary manager 2018-2019 season), The Landing Theatre CompanyShunya Theatre, the Rice Players,  Firecracker Productions, Black Lab TheatreHorse Head TheatreCelebration Theatre, and Houston-born monthly storytelling event Grown Up Story Time.

Bree has a holistic training in theatre from Texas A&M University, where she studied acting, stage management, directing, and literary criticism, along with design and technology.  Her directorial debut was with TAMU's summer company, Blueprint Theatre Company, in 2012 with a production of Eurydice by Sarah Ruhl. She holds a bachelor of arts degree in theatre arts and in political science, studying comparative national politics, public opinion, and women and minority representation, complimenting her interest in sociopolitically engaging works, and promoting cultural diversity on stage. Her current interests are in promoting scientific literacy and climate justice through storytelling, navigating identity and privilege, and representations of health and wellness on stage.

Raised in Waco, Texas, she got into theatre when she realized she wasn't very good at choir and everyone was just being polite about it. When not in rehearsal, she practices yoga, reads science fiction/fantasy novels, blogs about everyday sustainability, and shares astrology memes on instagram.
