Everleigh is a fun-loving six-year-old with a vivid imagination who loves to entertain. She has an established sense of self, a wildly creative nature, and confidence beyond her years. A natural performer, she brings careful consideration and thoughtful action to her craft as an actor. Everleigh takes direction well and has quick memorization skills. She sees the world through the lens of curiosity, creativity and compassion. She began dancing at age 2 and playing the violin at age 4. She loves to sing and is a visual artist. Her artistic mindset is essential to the very nature of her being. In her spare time, she enjoys choreographing dances, writing songs on guitar and piano, playing with her sister, exploring nature, building Legos, and visiting museums with her family. Everleigh recently made her professional stage debut as Ivonka in the musical Once at the Paramount Theatre in Aurora, IL. Her dream theatrical role is to play Annie or Matilda someday. Everleigh is also a professional model and looks forward to working more in film and television.
