Mamie is originally from Berkeley, CA where she began acting at 8 years old with the California Shakespeare Theater (Cal Shakes). Mamie fell in love with performing and bringing classical text to life through storytelling, and she continued her theater studies over the next ten years working with the youth training programs at renowned Bay Area theaters Berkeley Repertory Theater and A.C.T. in San Francisco.
After two years at U.C. Santa Barbara, Mamie decided to commit her studies full time to performing art and transferred to The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles. Upon completion of her performance year at AADA, Mamie was picked up by a boutique agency in LA, which gave her the opportunity to audition for film and television while she also worked as an intern at Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum. Through this experience, Mamie had the opportunity to share the stage with some of LA’s most seasoned theater actors. Mamie has now been in Portland for just under 4 years and has had the pleasure of working with some astounding talent in the community. Mamie was most recently seen on stage at The Shoebox Theater in Alan Bowne’s BEIRUT, which also marked her producorial debut. Last summer, you may have seen her sporting boxing gloves and getting thrown around an MMA fighting cage in the West Coast premiere of Girl in the Red Corner, by Stephen Spotswood at Defunkt Theater, directed by Paul Angelo. Most recently, Mamie made her producorial debut with BEIRUT by Alan Bowne, which was met with universal acclaim from audiences and critics alike.
