Amelia is a stage manager, youth teaching artist, stress management coach, and avid coffee cup collector currently based in Las Vegas, Nevada. She is originally from Darlington, England and holds Permanent Residency in the United States of America.
As a child, Amelia was extremely lucky to attend an educational children's theatre and have access to both the performing arts onstage and the magic backstage. For over ten years, she was even luckier to be a part of that educational children's theatre as a Makeup Designer, Show Director, Production Stage Manager, Workshop Leader & Creator, Youth Acting Coach, and Assistant Artistic Director. The time she spent in that theatre has shaped her into the well rounded, curious, and devoted artist she is today.
Her stage management career started in the non-profit theatre and event realm. She adventured briefly into management and coordination for corporate events before finding herself running away to Las Vegas to work with commercial circus and magic shows. As a stage manager, Amelia takes pride in being a collaboration facilitator, lives for the moments of conquering a challenge with her team, and finding the moments to be technically artistic behind the scenes.
Amelia believes that what someone did during the global pandemic of 2020 is quickly going to become the hottest interview topic. She won't lie, she spent a lot of time playing the Sims. However, Amelia also became the Warehouse Manager and Procurement Specialist for a Las Vegas logistics company that imported Covid19 testing supplies and supported over 300 hospitals across the United States.
In her free time, Amelia likes to read Neil Gaiman, work as a stress management coach for stage managers, and daydream about her old lady life goal of owning a goat farm.
Amelia is a proud professional member of the United States Institute for Theatre Technology, USITT Intermountain Desert Region Chapter, the Educational Theatre Association, and the Stage Managers Association.
